Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 283
nettle, leaven, mollycoddle, affable
"Gadzooks! am I to be thrice nettled by this perseverating indolent logomaniac - must I conjure afresh the dead (white, purple and yellow) and grasp the comparative urticaceous duo, merely to mollycoddle his pleonastic proclivities? - must I forsake my erstwhile affability, now leavened to seething ferment? - begorra, I'll show him my mettle!"
