Quandary Resolution 1572
spleenful, fidget, eminently, fantod
Being alone in the house with creepy Mr. Uren gave me a serious case of the fantods, so that I jumped at ordinary household noises (like the rinse cycle coming on in the washer) and it also resulted in my fidgeting industriously with all the items in my place setting but never actually eating any dinner, which made the already irritable Uren frankly spleenful about my entire branch of the family and our lack of appreciation for sophisticated dining, a subject on which he felt himself eminently qualified to pronounce on account of having once written an article for the "Lifestyle" section of the local paper about salted cod.
