Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1592
triskaidekaphobia, libration, predilection, premorse
When I suggested that employees should be allowed to take every Friday the 13th off in observance of a proposed Triskaedekaphobia Awareness Day, our sensitivity-trained corporate HR manager did not realize that my predilection for joking was here operative, and, wanting to appear to give my proposal due consideration before rejecting it, he refrained from shaking his head yes or no, but let it librate like the moon for minutes on end, until he finally remembered the meaning of "triskaedekaphobia," grasped the essence of my suggestion, truncated his feigned deliberation, and showed me the door, giving our interaction (I felt) an uncomfortably premorse aspect.
