Quandary Resolution 409
periphrastic, John Lennon glasses, fiery, solicitous
Cindy had always found her boyfriend's solicitiousness off-putting, but she had never expressed the point directly, until one evening he showed up wearing John Lennon glasses to impress her (she was a Beatles fan), and they got into a fiery argument that resulted in the shedding of his spectacles and her periphrastic disguises.
