Quandary Resolution 1419
coprolalia, equipage, sepulchre, yen
The sepulchral Dr. Appelbaum, whose cadaverous build, pale skin, and dark-encircled eyes had startled many an unsuspecting dinner partner over the years, stifled his strong yen to call Mrs. Gibson and tell her he wouldn't be able to attend her dinner party this year, set about tidying up the equipage necessary to his careful study of fossil feces, and then went to shower and shave, already dreading the inevitable confusion about his work (goats! - no, that's "capra", then, beauty? - no that's "carpa"), especially the part where he told them what coprology really was and they were offended and would accuse him of coprolalia, when in fact he was extremely formal and correct in his speech.
