Quandary Resolution 3636
discomfit, fan death, knee-jerk, chelonian
Mr. Park decided that he could not sleep in the bedroom because he feared fan death, while his wife insisted the electric fan stay on; sleeping in the garden was not an option, though, because of his knee-jerk aversion to turtles; and thus he found himself with the discomfiting choice between killer oscillating fans and the possibility of scary armored chelonians wandering into the garden.
