A situation that requires a choice between options that are or seem equally unfavorable or mutually exclusive.
This is a dilemma. Should I pay $47.00 – $77.00 to see Dennis Miller when he comes to the San Diego Civic Theater in July?
Or should I let Miller pay me $15 to sit in the audience at his TV show and laugh when the little sign comes on?
Or maybe I should just take curtain number three that contains the colonoscopy. At least it comes with a mild sedative.
