Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1526
noisome, yellow-bellied, Hobson's choice, nitid
The sweater that Grandma knitted for me was both nitid (in its brilliant yellowness) and noisome (it needed a wash), but Grandma gave me a Hobson's choice — wear it, or wear it — and so I spent the day yellow-bellied, afraid to be seen or smelled.
