Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 362
amour-propre, hebetude, disputatious, couture
Here's our shopping ritual: we visit the nearby couture boutique, I reject one slim dress after another, offering lame exuses, not wanting to hurt her amour-propre, she calls me disputatious, we resort to "let's just take this one and leave," more out of hebetude than deliberation, then we get home and she realizes the dress is too small.
