Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2962
jeeves, unprocurable, hyperborean, attenuate

My butler Jeeves (that wasn't his real name; his real name was Cheech, but since that praenomen failed to convey the sense of class and elegance I require in a valet, I replaced it with something more highbrow) was the kind of man who could obtain the unobtainable and procure the unprocurable; so when I summoned him to my bedside one morning and blithely asked him to "fetch" me the fabled Arrow of Abaris (the mythical golden dart bequeathed by the sun-god Apollo to Abaris the Hyperborean), the steward's unflagging complaisance evinced not the slightest hint of attenuation: he merely asked me for $50,000 traveling expenses, and he'd have the arrow for me within the year.
