Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4566
schadenfreude, phillumenist, gnomic, tertiary
"This is going to end badly", my mantic and gnomic wife said every time we drove past the gas station owned by our phillumenist neighbor, but on the day his collection of matches and matchboxes caught fire and blew up the fuel tanks, she felt no schadenfreude and spoke no 'I-told-you-so-s' but instead worried about the secondary effects of smoke and tertiary impact on the environment.
