Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3110
parvenu, apograph, insouciance, glace

 

By now, I was somehow finding that it needed no powers of vaticination to anticipate the reappearance on my screen of the word 'insouciance', so insouciantly presented without definition or indeed any alteration whatsoever, and for the fourth time in a row, that I consider its reappearances to constitute an apograph desperately seeking parvenu logophilic acceptance by virtue of its very irradicability; so with my teeming brain bewilder'd, shake a leg, stir yourself, and bring me a martini glace, and mind you don't stint on the ice!
