Quandary Resolution 406
periphrastic, John Lennon glasses, fiery, solicitous
"Do you think, maybe," hazarded the vicar, soulfully soliciting his wife's solicitous solace, "if I were, perhaps, to don or otherwise furnish myself with a pair, a brace, a twosome of those groovy - what do you call 'em - John Lennon glasses, that they might in their unspectacular (hm, hm)selves just go some small way towards disguising, or rather compensating for, my propensity, well, my inclination, how shall I put it, my penchant . . . verily I say unto you, my quasi-involuntary espousal of the circumlocutory, - or if you will - the periphrastic mode of righteous convivial discourse; or would that be venturing one giant step too far into the burning fiery furnace of contemporary mores?"
