Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1877
solferino, anadromous, zeroth, smithereens
'I ordered salmon pink, but now you tell me you've only got Perkin's mauvine and acres of bloody solferino, and that just blows to smithereens my Paris Spring collection on an anadromous theme; so if I can't achieve my zenith as zeroth inter pares by going against the tide and spawning a new style, then I'm all washed up for my seminal vernal nautical-fluminal foible.'
