Quandary Resolution 4342
quadrennium, pergola, lagniappe, whinge
At completion of the pergola, my carpenter declared to me smugly, as if it was for me some kind of incredibly generous lagniappe, that his work was "fully guaranteed for a year", but I whinged in return that only one year betrayed his lack of confidence in his own craftsmanship and that he should extend it to at least a quadrennium.
