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:


It might be that the Creator blinked, if such a thing is possible, or sighed, if Creators sigh, even took a sip of coffee, if that is something that Creators do, but one thing was certainly true: the Creator's eye was definitely off the ball for a second, or even a millisecond, which might, in the life of this Universe, the best that the Creator had constructed, far, far better than the previous ones, have been a million years; the Spirits which whirled around in the Creator's consciousness definitely sensed that something unanticipated had occurred, something unintended and therefore unbalancing, something which troubled the Creator and sent shock waves through the Spirits; one, Zb65l*sq~~ felt itself experience a shudder akin to the arachnophobia one of it's human lives had suffered from; another, trsk!¬<>8, dismissed arachnophobia as unbefitting a Spirit, while GgKk$K753+ wondered if arachnophobia was maybe a plesionym for something less unpleasant and that maybe Zb651*sq~~ had got the wrong end of the stick, but MNM??89% said that GgKk$K753+ was clearly an energumen and had probably consorted with [u<1F3r and the Merrie Pranksters and should be ignored but, as it wasn't the done thing among Spirits to Shun any or send them to Coventry, it would be best to simply ignore the last remark which as when, in a sudden peripeteia, MNM??89% and GgKk$753+ both vanished from the Spirit swarm and landed with a bump in Kansas!
