Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2815
poetaster, petrichor, factoid, animalcule
The ripe, heady petrichor wafting out of the marsh, signaling the first rains of invierno in Guanacaste, distracted my students from their books and microscopes; pithy factoids went unread and animalcules swam unheeded in their Petri dishes, and the class poetaster was moved to pen an ode to Dan Janzen instead of working on his dichotomous key.
