Quandary Resolution 1290
carphology, henpeck, qui vive, scuttle
Henpecked Mr. Keenan, perennially watchful and on the qui vive for his ferociously tidy wife, despaired to learn that she had hired a professional carphologer to pick the lint, fuzz, and stray hairs from his sweater as he scuttled, low to the ground and with averted eyes, from his study to his workshop.
