Quandary Resolution 559
gauntlet, mettle, myrmidon, atelier
Henry is rich in gold but poor in mettle, and the only gauntlet he's ever taken up is the one he purchased at Sotheby's, now on display in the luxury condo he calls his 'atelier,' where he postures as an artist but cowers from the canvas, watching idly as his scurrying, well-tipped myrmidons do the only brushwork that happens in the place, the dusting and sweeping.
