Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3500
gradgrind, sororate, lymphatic, caprice

Had not the sororate been in effect in that part of the Yukon Territory in those days, a sprightly, energetic, phat-bottomed diva like Caprice Velour would never have so much as contemplated (let alone gone through with) matrimonial union with a lymphatic old gradgrind like Malcolm B'starde; but circumstances being what they were, their connubial doom was proclaimed at high noon (as if 'twere some ominous decree in a one-horse wild west town) on the morning of the eleventh, by a hoary old shaman from Papua, New Guinea, named Lester (indeed, 'twas this last fact--that the Papua shaman's name was "Lester"--that set many of us to wondering whether this capricious merger was, in fact, valid at all).
