chained_bear commented on the word embarras de choix
"... is it not very amazingly strange that a gunner should have a watch?"
"Oh Lord, no. In a frigate it is unusual, of course, but in many a sloop with only one lieutenant... it is quite common... in our case there is an embarras de choix."
--O'Brian, The Truelove, 99
Overabundance of choices.
