Quandary Resolution 382
savoir-faire, piffle, leviathan, gallimaufry
Petrovich, a drunken one-eyed leviathan of a man, listened to the piffle of Akakiy Akakievitch with as much savoir-faire as his aggravated temper could muster, carefully considered Akakiy's request that he, Petrovich the tailor, replace the worn parts of the overcoat with a gallimaufry of shreds and patches, then roared, “No, it is impossible. It is a wretched garment!”
