Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1748
shinney, pangram, scintillate, wend
The Sphinx of black quarts disappeared and we promptly judged that it would be better to wend our way from the Imbaba bridge to an antique shop filled with scintillating ivory buckles inscribed with the words ‘my vow’, and then further, for the next prize was to be ours, so a judge said, only if we could come up with an answer encapsulating at least one pangram containing the word ‘shinney’ (in its new version, he insisted, where the equipment of the game was made out of words), then when we were about to receive the prize, quick flashes, as if throwing off sparks, appeared and I woke up, then slowly got ready and checked out of the hotel, as it was our last day in Cairo before flying back home.
