Trilemma

Today’s Best Word Ever is trilemma: a quandary involving the struggle to determine which one of three courses to take.

A noun, tri + lemma,  from Latin, or Greek, tria  “three,” combined with Greek lemma “something received or taken; an argument; something taken for granted”; 1560s, first used mathematically.

Carol could not solve her brewing latte trilemma: tall, grande, or venti? 

 

Once you’ve decided, would you care for a slice of Snowy Day Bundt Cake to enjoy with your java?

Is that here or to go?
