Quandary Resolution 3883
auscultate, dead tree edition, borborygmus, instauration


After testifying in front of the school board that there was no reason to buy new textbooks for the high school because today’s youth rely on the internet and digital media for their information and education, Madison was freaked out that her nervous borborygmus, which was so loud one didn’t need a stethoscope to auscultate the sounds coming from her gut, would give away her presence in the library, where she was sitting in the corner reading a dead tree edition of a book she had reviewed online – something which was happening more and more often since she had become involved in the instauration of the historic building as part of her student community service project.
