Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1955
emote, isthmus, greasy spoon, saccade
When Walter finally returned to the greasy spoon where he and Kate had shared their first $2 Heart Attack Special, his mind's eye began to saccade across the memory of his former lover, but he did not let himself emote: he knew he needed to cross the isthmus between the idealized past and the present ASAP so that he could fully appreciate the burger on his plate today.
