Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1647
macerate, kibitz, milquetoast, orthoepy
By now, Alf looked like a giant pale raisin because he had been macerating in the bathtub for hours, contemplating eternal verities and wondering whether he should accede to the mostly unsolicited advice of the Sociology Department kibitzers and thereby risk seeming like a milquetoast to several professors he admired, or continue to make a spectacle of himself in the classroom defending orthoepy against the Twitter and Facebook forces of linguistic barbarism.
