Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4186
jeremiah, sparge, surfeit, mucro
A pollyanna once sought to marry a jeremiah, believing naively that she could alter his gloomy disposition by sparging him with a surfeit of kind words and gestures, but the curmudgeon would not be placated and he punctured her optimism as easily and terminally as a leaf mucro with a toddler's soap bubble floating up into the trees.
