Quandary Resolution 4794
niggler, sequela, fustigate, logomachy
Don't be distressed, my pet; your father and I were just engaged in a bit of spirited logomachy over what to call you -- I say "common imbecile", and he says "encephalo-something-or-other" and claims your condition is the sequela to my having dropped you on your head so many times when you were an infant, a fault -- I admit it! -- for which he never fails to fustigate me when an occasion presents itself, being the carping niggler that he is.
