Quandary Resolution 1935
misogamy, worsted, vanguard, trepidation
Fr. O'Donnell, who had officiated at thousands of weddings during his sixty years in the priesthood and developed as a result an intransigent case of misogamy, was anticipating with an unpleasantly familiar combination of trepidation and ennui the prospect of performing yet another marriage on Saturday, this one between the Worbley Woolens heiress (and just the thought of the worsted-clad congregation made him itch) and a young man from another parish who, by the look of him, was in the vanguard of some hideous new fashion in personal grooming involving plastic fruit.
