Quandary Resolution 918
lincolnesque, hypernatremic, will-o'-the-wisp, salient
Larry is a flighty diagnostician of his own ailments, constantly chasing the hypochnodriac's will-o'-the-wisp – the perfect prescription – but this fact is belied by the most salient feature of his appearance, a Lincolnesque beard which suggests composure and gravitas, and thereby helps him persuade physicians of his claims, most recently that he developed hypernatremia from eating two salted pretzels.
