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:


My lip gloss applied, that's when I decide
To go to the Pub and get blattered;
To slake my strong thirst, I drink whiskey first,
Then move on to ale 'til I'm shattered;
But then I get slow, my extremities bow
And I fall to the floor while I pee
I have to ease up, else die in my cups
A cunctative measure I need!!!
(by OldRawgabbit)


There once was a Lass in New Ross,

Took a fancy to ensnare her Boss,

With extremities akimbo,

This uncunctative Bimbo,

Slaked his collar in crimson lip-gloss,


(by MissTeriWoman)


With no further cunctative delay,

I wave my extremities away,

I slake all my fear,

With your admirable rear,

While your lip gloss adjures me to stay,
