Quandary Resolution 1294
carphology, henpeck, qui vive, scuttle
His son who was on the qui vive for any sign of henpecking on the part of his mother, was shocked to see him addicted to carphology, having become so nervous that he disposed of the lint in the coal scuttle next to his fireside bed, with the result that his habit was as clearly manifest as coals spilt on a field of snow.
