Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?

Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


'Annabelle, Annabelle,
Why don't you Go to Hell?
In your Titanic Vest.
You're just an Anapest,
And, when you Masticate
Loudly, you sound like Kate,
It's so hard to tolerate;
But that seems to be my Fate,
Now you're married to Jeremy,
My Brother's polysemy
Wife's my dear Relative,
I must find an adjective
I can use as a sedative
To deaden my senses,
Relax all my tenses,
Erect some high fences,
To keep you at bay
For just one whole day,
Think of – Sweet Annabelly
As Strawberry Jelly,'
and Traci MacGillivray added her name and sent the e-mail via the Revenue's Intranet to her sister-in-law and deputy, Annabelle MacGillivray (nee Arbuthnot) whose own office was just across the corridor and it was just a few seconds later that she heard a Whoop and gurgling laugh which told her it had been received and appreciated and just a few minutes passed before there was a knock at her door, a polite wait for to call “enter,” and Annabelle's head, topped by flame-red hair appeared, followed by the rest of her, indeed wearing a 'Titanic – Accident or Conspiracy?' tee-shirt, filled the doorway, carrying two mugs of coffee and a large bowl with quivering strawberry jelly and two spoons - “Annabelle, you know me so Well,” said Traci, rising to kiss her and relieve her of the bowl and one of the mugs.
