Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2991
avocation, thoroughfare, hard-boiled, stonewall

 

Far be it from me actively to stonewall your current application to sweep the public thoroughfare - and you may indeed wish to charge me with an attitude both stiff-necked and hard-boiled if you really must mix metaphors, but I note from your résumé that until recently your avocation has been that of philosopher, so I was just wondering if you had given the matter sufficient thought.
