Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1962
doole, gaudy, fossick, palpitate
Granny had been up in the attic moving boxes for an hour, fossicking around, looking for the photograph of Jack in his gaudy dress uniform (paved with medals and festooned with gold braid), and the unaccustomed exercise had given her heart palpitations, which landed her in the hospital, so when we should have been having a raucously good time at Thanksgiving dinner, instead we were all in the ER waiting room feeling quite dooley and at loose ends.
