Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2958
solarize, sequent, pigeon-livered, torrefy

The black and white print that the kid showed me was so strongly solarized  - horribly overexposed, I'd say - that you'd think he'd torrefied the developing negative by cooking it against a 100 watt bulb for half an hour, such was the sequent shift in key - but no; turns out he's one of those pigeon-livered techno nerds whose newfangled computer does all the donkey-work for him at the click of a rodent - now where's the skill in that?
