Quandary Resolution 8396
makepeace, nervous, sea change, amour fou, n.

So Enneas the makepeace had to find some way of calming the increasingly and inexplicably hysterical Parish Clerk, Gregory; he called for help from Gregory's secretary, Marcia, who sashayed into the office, oozing muliebrity and Enneas thought she looked as if she would be more at home in the pages of some plutography magazine, Tatler, Homes and Gardens or The Field, rather than the mundane offices of a small, rural, local authority, but when she walked straight up to Gregory and slapped his face hard with her open right hand, leaving the Clerk chapfallen and dazed, the Solicitor realized that he had once again made the mistake of judging a book by it's cover and was relieved that his own jaw was not hanging in sympathy with Gregory's; but Marcia simply turned, and said: "he spilt his whisky, again, shall I make some coffee?" and Enneas nodded gratefully.
