Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3510
dilettante, hypocoristic, prescind, piacular

Our pompous art director treated me like a dog, always shouting my name in choppy, hypocoristic form while snapping his fingers in my face if I dared to prescind from his long boring lectures, and never expressing any piacularity for the crude and rude way in which he ripped apart my works as if they were just thrown together by some pathetic dilettante.
