Quandary Resolution 1249
Morton's fork, windmill, gravamen, tipple
The gravamen that Jorge had with his ex-fiancée, Fiona, was not her clandestine tippling nor her habit of windmilling her arms as she walked, but the fact that she agonized over the most mundane of choices, assuming the worst about all possible outcomes; for instance, her treating such simple queries as whether to dine indoors or al fresco as one would a Morton's fork, when in reality, they might be sporks at best.
