Quandary Resolution 2113
ontology, don't look a gift horse in the mouth, philately, horripilate
Kumar's hair horripilated at the calculated piercing response to his harmless complaint about Kelly's Christmas gift - a book on ontology - "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth," said Mrs. Iyer, adding in the same breath, "had you married Ramya like I asked you to, you would have gotten rare stamps from all over the world - she is into philately you know, not philosophy like Kelly is."
