Quandary Resolution 7768
rede, Imbolc, portend, rabbit hole, n.
While working on a ranch as part of the witness protection program, Grantly Maroon became interested in Wicca and decided to perform an Imbolc ritual on the Saturday closest to February 1st, when he would get each of the cattle to jump over a fire in order to ensure their good health, but--acting without rede and mistaking the size of the fire needed for the ritual--Grantley planned to drive the animals over a large bonfire, which portended an impromptu Texas-style barbecue; fortunately, one of his friends, realizing the size of the fire she was helping to prepare, called animal protection, but by the time officers arrived, the feds had already snatched Grantley Maroon off the ranch and out of that identity, and had sent him down the rabbit hole.
