Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2483
portamento, moonraker, volte-face, confute
A few days into our two-man Pacific crossing, my patience suffered a sharp volte-face and I forcefully strung up Perkins at the top of the mast next to the moonraker where he could practice his glissando and his portamento at leisure without my incessant confuting of his right to do so all day long for ten days in a row.
