Quandary Resolution 8081
aladdinize, bandura, sporadic, lactivist, n.
It was 1927 and Caspar Milquetoast realized that as a modern person he couldn't hope for a genie to aladdinize him into a palatial environment, but when he won the lottery he was happy to buy with money what he had not been able to acquire through magic, and so he purchased companionship and entertainment in large quantities, including a French cook, a Japanese housekeeper, a refugee from the White Russian army who plucked the strings of his bandura during dinner, and Romany dancers for afters, and Caspar also made sure he had the latest and best of everything, including making sporadic forays into cutting edge science and technology, although his wife frustrated his dream of an utterly hygienic nursery presided over by a nanny who boiled everything from binkies to baby bottles; Mrs. Milquetoast simply declared herself a committed lactivist and evicted the nanny.
