Quandary Resolution 2650
volte-face, spallation, stultify, canorous
After enduring for some months the stultifying routine of raking out the old cement mortar and repointing with lime, of daily wincing at the severe spallation damage to weathered sandstone quoins, and of tapping some thousands of delaminating roofing slates hoping for - just once in a while - a canorous ring of health, he made a sudden volte-face in his decision to repair the old schoolhouse, and put it back on the market.
