Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2808
servage, anodyne, applesauce, materfamilias
The news that the materfamilias of the family had been eaten was horrific, but somehow the fact that a side of applesauce had been served along with her made it even worse; nor was it any anodyne that the wine served happened to be the perfect vintage (a 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc--I almost wish I could have been there, now that I think of it), nor that Desdemona, the housekeeper of 49 long and weary years, was at last free of servage to her abominable (though by all accounts delicious) mistress.
