Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3926
billet-doux, badinage, sciential, ectopic

By using erudite language and a haughty demeanor that were completely devoid of lightness, humor and badinage, I somehow convinced Mildred that I was very serious, or even dour, and supremely sciential in all the weighty subjects of our time, and it was ectopic to her that I then sent her a risque billet-doux, a box of donuts, and a ticket to join me and watch a mud-wrestling contest at a biker hangout on the outskirts of town.
