Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4464
sang-froid, orgulous, taradiddle, also-ran

“To have kept up this big lie, not a trivial taradiddle, for over a decade must certainly have required a lot of sang-froid on your part and, I might add, an extremely orgulous attitude towards your accusers who, as we now know to our infinite dismay, were right about you all along”, the interviewer said to the fallen cycling celebrity, but he bit his lip and complained that “the pressure on cyclists is enormous and I did not want to be just another also-ran.”
