Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2303
longinquity, indign, urbane, vulpine
Avon Barksdale always said you only serve two days in prison, the day you come in and the day you get out, but for Dennis the longinquity between the two - eighteen years - was impossible to ignore and his usual calm, poised, urbane manner was beginning to fray at the prospect, his discomfort magnified by shame over the fact that the indign behavior that had landed him here had been more porcine than vulpine; that is, greed had won out over craftiness.
