Quandary Resolution 2264
expostulate, phobosophy, cavalier, totemic
The Terpsichore family had a totemic sculpture of a Degas-style ballerina on their front lawn (carved from the bole of an oak by an enormous man cavalierly wielding a six-foot Stiehl chainsaw with one hand while using the other to turn up the volume on his iPod), which was a magnet for passers-by, who could be seen in groups on the sidewalk expostulating variously on public sculpture, dance, arboriculture, and aesthetics, along with an occasional stand-offish phobosophist whose fear of abstract thinking had been exacerbated by overhearing discussion of the nature of beauty.
