Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1769
extenuate, bereave, permeable, agog
'Jenkins, it's plain as a pikestaff that your sudden bereavement (cease that snivelling, boy!) has rendered your addled brain even less permeable to instruction than usual, but that constitutes absolutely no extenuating circumstance for failing to submit punctually your Latin prep, so there's no need to stand there all agog in fond expectation of an impromptu exeat - request denied.'
