Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2673
apastron, turtle, panegyric, simpatico
I never found the young whippersnapper at all simpatico as an undergraduate, particularly after his incompetence as cox caused our rowing eight to turn turtle in the Boat Race; so I had no hesitation in declining the Provost's invitation to write a panegyric on his premature elevation to a Professorship in Astronomy - especially since his 'fundamental breakthrough' on binary star orbits had owed its few insights to my own detailed corrections of his hopelessly muddled miscalculations of apastron distance.
