Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1907
meiny, tandoor, qualm, parse
Ekanath efficiently collected wagonloads of food and drink and organized the domestics of the several households into an orderly meiny, so we set out at last for Khyber Paktunkhwa, our qualms soothed by the presence of so many stout retainers, the plentiful provisions, and the presence of the learned Doctor Taraprashad on whose giant intellect (though he spent the entire journey sitting in a dim corner of one of the carriages parsing lines of Pashto poetry) we relied for solving any problems we might encounter en route, as when at the first evening halt we discovered that the cart holding the tandoor had either strayed or had been left behind and we had no way of baking the naan, but he showed us how to prepare something quite palatable using heated stones instead.
