Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3743
riposte, paratransit, unabashed, adenoidal

Although I'm neither disabled nor elderly, I'm nevertheless an avid and unabashed user of on-demand paratransit for my transportation needs around town; and when some outraged octogenarian raises the inevitable objection to my presence on the shuttle, waving his cane and shouting in his high-pitched adenoidal voice, "You shouldn't be here!", I have my riposte at the ready: "Age, my dear codger, is a state of mind: and as it happens, I'm feeling particularly old and infirm today--so be a good fellow and get me another Dewars and water, pronto."
