Quandary Resolution 7915
shoehorn, oxishly, nectar, padkos, n.
Caspar Milquetoast rolled his eyes as his mother insisted he include a shoehorn in the knapsack he was packing for his hiking trip, because since boyhood he had always so oxishly trod down the heels of his shoes as he was putting them on (something he was unlikely to do to his hiking boots), but he bore with her silently because the homemade broth and brownies she added to his padkos in the inner compartment were nectar and ambrosia to him.
