Quandary Resolution 5022
blue chip, inveterate, thwart, ploce
Granddad was an inveterate gambler, but not very good at cards, and I'll always remember the expression on Grandmother's face when she realized she'd arrived from the kitchen too late to thwart his placement of her remaining blue chip stock certificates on the table in a wager, a look which prompted him to this philosophocal ploce: "Kid, there's bad luck, and then there's BAD luck."
