Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1386
antipoetic, counterplot, compadre, couvade
If your compadre starts acting up the couvade, complaining loudly about his morning sickness while rejecting petulantly the pretty frock you thoughtfully bought for him, then it's high time you established which of you in this civil partnership actually wears the trousers; and if you find an outright confrontation too offensively prosaic, too unromantically antipoetic, has it not even once occurred to you that he (the bitch!) may be actively counterplotting against your own less subtle machinations to typecast him as the submissive partner?
