Quandary Resolution 5152
aspirate, battle of the sexes, proximate, pittance
A passionate drinking contest in the ongoing battle of the sexes between me and my girlfriend was the proximate cause of my overly aspirating the word "why?" in a smart-alecky response to the ticket agent at the American Airlines counter who was asking about our final destination, a snafu that resulted in us coming to our senses midway through a flight bound for Honolulu, and in me being set back more than a pittance on my Mastercard account -- I had assumed that the agent would know from our coats and our skis that we wanted the flight to Denver!
