Quandary Resolution 747
methuselah, affront, alow, distrait
Curious to know how his favorite wines aged in larger containers, Larry signed up for the Methuselah Meetup aboard a fancy yacht in Boston Harbor, but he arrived to find no 6-liter bottles of vino ready for sampling (not even a Jeroboam or a lousy Magnum), only oodles of nonagenarians mingling alow and aloft, and a few distrait caretakers who considered it an affront – really the last straw – that their bosses at the local nursing homes required them to supervise this harrowing excursion.
