Quandary Resolution 2588
acharnement, bilious, jimjams, equivocate
The avocado green and harvest gold (two bilious decorator colors from far back in the last century) made Jason feel quite queasy but, for his grandmother's sake, he equivocated on the question of whether they would make the guest bedroom more or less "cozy", his apparent lack of enthusiasm prompting Grandmother, whom Jason would never have pegged as bloodthirsty, to propose instead a combination of brick red and claret of such unavoidable acharnement that Jason, an Iraq vet, got a bad case of the jimjams and had to go outside for some fresh air.
