Quandary Resolution 58
umber, shoe whore, polemic, titivate
Sister Mary Margaret was glad not to be among those poor, discalced Carmelites, whose feet took on the umber pigmentation of the soil they trod; still, her secret vice, that she was a shoe whore, a real "scortum calceorum," had led to more than one polemic by the Mother Superior against her penchant to titivate her tootsies with the wares of Ferragamo and Manolo Blahnik.
