Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2550
shock-headed, ruthlessly, Kafkaesque, interregnum
In the interregnum between my grandmother's death and my mother's taking over the management of the household, my mother ruthlessly eliminated all possible competition (including her own sister, her two cousins, and even my grandparents' raggedy, shock-headed housekeeper) by the simple expedient of sending them all to the county seat to navigate the Kafkaesque bureaucracy of the County Clerk's Office, ostensibly to clear up the question of title to the Overbrook property, but really to get them all out of the way long enough to insure that she could consolidate power and assume control.
