Quandary Resolution 1957
doole, stuffed shirt, vagary, nacreous
On the television, some pompous, blathering stuffed shirt was shouting with faked enthusiasm about cold fronts, so Abe switched it off and stood in the dark looking out the bedroom window, where his dooleful expression changed slowly to soothed and cheerful as he watched the nacreous moon caught in the bare tree branches and the little silvery clouds propelled hither and thither by small vagaries of the wind, presaging fine, cool weather tomorrow.
