Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2381
pasticcio, to death, harbinger, buss
From my six years old vantage, the doorbell’s hailing of my voluble zaftig aunt was not just a harbinger of the day’s evacuation of fun, nor the first act in a pasticcio of offensive voices (hers) and bodily sounds (mine), namely, grunts from bear hugs into hypoxic buxomness, ear-piercing smacks from bussing, the abasing "thonk, thonk" from rough pats on the head and thwacks on the back – but, worst, it resurrected her overspent dubious palilogy of “I love you to death, death, death!” as my day’s “peine de mort.”
