Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2008
in toto, allusive, vanilla, hallow
It was one of Mother's godawful monochrome dinners - chicken, mashed potatoes, white asparagus, and vanilla ice cream - in toto, a veritable festival of blah, but there was no avoiding it, an occasion hallowed by virtue of being the tenth anniversary of my father's death, so the most we could hope for was to amuse ourselves sotto voce by speculating whether the meal was an intentionally allusive reference to his milquetoast personality.
