Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1045
obdurate, infelicitous, eloquent, megrim
Stanley's obdurate insistence on choosing a Trains Across the Dakotas package tour for their vacation, his resistance to her most impassioned and eloquent arguments in favor of any one of a number of other plans, and the prospect of spending the better part of three weeks confined to a Pullman berth with him (and his various infelicitous personal habits) all gave Sylvia a terrible case of the megrims and an irresistible yearning to lie down alone in a darkened room with a cold cloth on her forehead.
