Quandary Resolution 7544
paragnosis, bluff out, acolyte, cabbage, n.3
When Cinderella's cruel stepmother and stepsisters forbade her to go to the ball, her fairy godmother changed her appearance so that she could bluff them out if they saw her, and in her gown made of magically transformed cabbage, which were no longer ill-assorted remnants of cloth, but an iridescent marvel of golden scales, she dazzled everyone at the ball, and when she fled, leaving one golden slipper behind that found its way to King Jeff, through paragnosis he knew that the owner of the shoe was the girl he wanted to marry and he sent his faithful acolytes far and wide searching for the woman whose foot the shoe would fit.
