Quandary Resolution 1309
philippic, interpose, nidifugous, goad
While the gaggle of grown-ups were gabbing in the garden, Noreen’s nidifugous nine-year-old nephew stepped boldly down from his “house” in the tree, interposed himself into group and conversation, and began a forceful philippic against tyranny in all forms but especially that “most odious form of control known as bedtime;” all sat stunned until a particularly vitriolic and colorful phrase goaded the child’s mother out of her stupor and into the center of the circle, where she grabbed his arm, smacked him on the bottom, and pulled him away to bed.
