Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2715
calliopean, primal scene, condign, corybantic
It’s one thing to be presented with the primal scene in childhood; but to be condemned to the corybantic calliopean parental gesticulations of conjugal flagrante-delicto on the kitchen table, in ones forties, is unbearably excessive and it would be a supremely condign punishment of their antics were I to actually find my own apartment.
