Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1868
nankeen, belligerent, gimcrack, retrograde
When my partner saw the nankeen I was carrying through the door, he got all belligerent, slandering me as a “gimcrack whore” and dismissing my beautiful blue-and-white vase as an “Asian porcelain fix,” making me feel that despite the bi-weekly counseling, our relationship was progressing in retrograde.
