Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3492
gamp, a priori, gambol, doyenne

Dame Trudy Frumquist, that respected doyenne of the Ladies' Auxiliary Dirigible Society, with her ubiquitous mallorn-embroidered chartreuse gamp and everpresent coterie of squealing guinea-pigs, was wont to make the a priori argument that "gamboling leads to penury," but it is our belief she actually meant gambling, and somehow in her speech the word gamboling came out (we're not yet sure how such a thing could be possible, but we're working on it, sir).
