Quandary Resolution 356
amour-propre, hebetude, disputatious, couture
The disputacious bastard was always disrupting my carefully cultivated hebetude, but this particular public assault on my amour-propre (in the form of some cutting remarks on the nature of my friendship with Yves, the couturier) was the last straw, so I roused myself, sharpened my wits, and gave him a thorough tongue-lashing.
