Quandary Resolution 7578
dickensian, dernier, coeval, eady, adj. (and n.)

And with regards to Dickensian characteristics, the Very Reverend Angus MacAngus could likely be assumed to be coeval, in age, appearance, personality, and expectation that something will always "turn up", with Mr Micawber; he trusted that one or other of the Danes would speak first, and that he would say the right thing (there would be no benefit in stating their extremely dernier figure firest, the one below which they would not sell, for that was the lowest below which they would not go, so, judging that the Russkies were pretty eady - why they even wore designer shoes, and in the Cold War period MacAngus had been taught that he must always check the shoes, for the Russians were notorious for not giving tuppence for the state of their shoes - perhaps it was a historical natiuonal characteristic: snow, slush, ice, salt, all play havoc with shoes so as that is a year round state of affairs, no-one bothers to look after their shoes and doesn't give a jot about anyone else's - but the churchman liked a nice pair of Italian shoes on his feet, and he immediately noticed that brown kid pair worn by Paderewski Varolov snd the distinctive red Manolo Blahnik's favoured by Dmitri Dosvedanya, and so wrapped up in his thought was he, that he missed the first utterance by Dane #1 although not the different responses registering in the faces and posture of the two potential buyers, if a deal could be clinched today!
