Quandary Resolution 499
onomatomania, unobtrusively, malleable, lambent
Whenever the idea of onomatomania comes up in family conversation, we remember Sylvia's long obsession with the word "intransigent" which she used a dozen times a day to describe even the most pliant and unobstrusive people: me, for one (the most malleable and accomodating of women), not to mention her father, Bullroarer O'Brien, who may have been a bit rough around the edges, but who had a heart of lambent gold, or her sister Catherine, whose course in nighttime combat driving was eagerly elected by any recruit seeking a courteous and indulgent instructor.
