Quandary Resolution 288
nettle, leaven, mollycoddle, affable
I find Margie to be affable and pleasant for the most part, but the way she mollycoddles her children really nettles me: last night, she threw out a cake that she had been working on for hours when little Jack announced five minutes before dessert was to be served that he no longer eats leavened dough.
