Quandary Resolution 3557
bucolic, kettle of fish, livelong, pettifog

“This is a fine kettle of fish”, fussed Mrs. Richie, “especially since we gave up everything we owned to move out here when you retired because you wanted a bucolic setting where you could relax and breathe fresh air the livelong day, and now all you do is pettifog about the lack of amenities and the long distance to the hardware store or the supermarket, and how you can’t sleep longer in the morning because of the roosters crowing or late at night because of the chirping of the crickets and frogs.”
