Quandary Resolution 8167
Eeyore, oology, idée fixe, titch, n.1

It wis sae obvious an at the same time utterly unbelievable, an it struck me wi sic force that ah felt ah'd been a gloomy Eeyore, a little titch wi the ane idée fixe in ma heid, a stuck-in-the-mud pedestrian when ah should huv been soarin roon the Himalayas wi the Swami an the Eagles; in man mind ah pictured the engraving, as it presented itsel tae moi, an in ma imagination ah turned it roon, like upside doon, an saw it as it really wis:

Presented to

Sir Parlane MacFarlane

Hereditary Chieftain of

The Clan MacFarlane


Prince Edward Island

Nova Scotia

January 1st 2038

an the Swami cried oot tae Wee Wullie, wha wis headin back tae the Saloon wi a tray o empty glasses: "please, if you pray, Master William, to be so kind, as to indulge our oology, a dish of boiled eggs and hot buttered toast, to fetch and a fresh pot of the strongest tea aboard," and Wullie gied us a wink and a thumbs-up!
