Quandary Resolution 2931
lignify, hale, efficacious, brindled
"Stop being such a wimp, I wish I could inject some lignin into your spine to stiffen it", I hectored my dejected brindled friend who was seeking my advice on a romance gone wrong, but it was neither easy nor efficacious to hale his battered ego from its bottomless pit and I began to fathom his real problem, a combination of excessive pride and lame punnery when he said to me with a weak smile: "You call me a wimp but I will not lignify this with an answer."
