definition: a situation requiring a choice between equally undesirable alternatives
example: (the following is a real-life texting conversation)
Tyson: So Sister Moon [I did not take any literary license pertaining to the teacher's name] came into class with her skirt tucked in, talk about a dilemma
Me: Tucked in to what? (hoping that she was at least wearing garments)
Tyson: Her tights, luckily they were only knee highs
(Pause for at least 6 1/2 minutes of laughter)
Me: Well that's good.
Tyson: Ya so I'm a guy but you feel a need to tell her- awkward
Me: Whoa- did you tell her?
Tyson: Ya, not quite as awkward as you might think but still
Me: Was she embarassed?
Tyson: Very, the sad part is she didn't even know for how long...
Redefining dilemma: letting your female teacher walk around with her skirt tucked into her knee highs or telling her, even if you're a guy
