Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2940
manciple, handwaving, reprehensible, virilocal
Whenever there had been an error in the kitchen (and many did occur), the manciple of my new husband's father's wretched household would serve us a most reprehensible dish – handwaving and a false smile, two hour's worth – this in lieu of decent steak and of a decent apology, making me long ever more sorely for mother's good old cooking and curse with deeper dysphoria my mistake in consenting to a virilocal marriage.
