Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2102
tautology, pensive, quincunx, boondocks
Luke lived out in the hinterlands in a boondocks-appropriate dwelling made of rough-cut logs with the bark still on, but at the time our story commences he was not, in fact, settin' out on the stoop in his ovahauls gnawing on a piece of raw turnip, but rather gazing pensively at a chessboard set up on the kitchen table, wondering what to do about the quincunx before him, at the center of which was his king's bishop (his wife's three pawns and queen's rook facing him from four corners), and musing tautologically about the added bonus of planning ahead.
