Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2023
noodge, gestalt, venerate, mithridate
At the beginning of the marriage, Felix found much to venerate in Sandra, and vice versa, since each partner then considered the other as whole person, a gestalt--complex, mysterious, and irreducible--but in a decade of life together, their shared appreciation has turned to noodging--to the enumeration and dissection of failed promises--and now, whenever they are exposed to the irritant of each other's complaints, they suffer a joint allergic fit, and there is no mithridate that can restore their health, no mithridate they have yet discovered.
