Quandary Resolution 2654
volte-face, spallation, stultify, canorous
I was about to drop Physics 523 after Professor Partikl's stultifying lecture on spallation – a lecture which caused my cortex to vaporize and my throat to eject random grunts of incomprehension – but I did a volte-face upon hearing the canorous voice of Helen, the new teaching assistant, announcing her office hours.
