Quandary Resolution 460
arrogate, don't look a gift horse in the mouth, intransigent, paroxysm
Screaming "What do you mean, don't look a gift horse in the mouth?", in an enraged paroxysm of intransigence my wife there and then arrogated the right to choose in future her own Christmas present, surprising me more than somewhat in so abruptly abrogating our time-honoured and congenial custom of exchanging book tokens of modest value, and - on my part at least - so considerately wrapped, too.
