Quandary Resolution 7773
ailurophile, who would have thunk it, mettlesome, addulce v.
While courting Caspar Milquetoast, the thing Olivia Gabardine found most challenging was that he was an extreme ailurophile who, while thankfully he did not actually hoard cats, did center his entire life around Lucibelle, a rotund yet mettlesome grey tabby who had her own room in his two-bedroom apartment (Casper's home office was in the dining room) and who liked to say hello to visitors by scratching them vigorously and demanding treats; although Olivia did her best to addulce the prickly feline with food offerings, catnip, and honeyed speech, Lucibelle continued to display the general demeanor of a fiend from Hell and eventually Ms Gabardine joined the long line of ex-girlfriends, while Casper, though interested in marriage, at 40 found himself with his bachelor state unchanged: who'd've thunk it!
