Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2834
parky, trompe-l'oeil, collaborate, plangent
In a plangent whine the old tramp moaned that, since it was beginning to get a mite parky outside 'what with the nights drawing in and all', he would happily collaborate in partaking of our evening meal, seated by our roaring fire - unless of course that was actually only a mirage - some newfangled power-hungry plasma-screen trompe-l'oeil that only idle bastards like ourselves could ever afford.
