Quandary Resolution 6502
clerisy, rooibos, reconcile, cackleberry

It really was difficult for me to reconcile Auntie Crist's membership of the clerisy with her injunction to me to sip my rooibos tea more slowly and eat my cackleberry with toast soldiers more carefully: this was so out of character for such a bluestocking that I must have gaped for she then said: "didn't your mother tell you not to eat with your mouth open, Theresa? she was always too liberal with you girls for my liking and it doesn't inspire confidence, so now do be a pet and conduct yourself with due decorum at my table!"
