Quandary Resolution 1728
hades, tepid, countermand, ambrosial
Condemned to an early morning hades of tepid coffee, soggy cornflakes, and burnt toast, Donald wished he had paid more attention to the waitress' suggestions and not countermanded his original order for bacon and eggs (not to mention the fresh fruit salad she had described enthusiastically as "ambrosial") just because he was feeling adversarial after the fight with his wife.
