Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3247
vamp, subduct, importunate, anomie
When I said "subduction," that importunate vamp Hortense Nussmacker thought I said "seduction," and promptly began working her feminine wiles on me; with the result that rather than "getting down below," we instead "got down to business"--for I confess that when a mood of anomie lies heavily upon me, I tend to be a tad more vulnerable to the charms of some of the hairier ladies.
