Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4643
temerarious, roundabout, redbrick, ingratiate
Edward, darling, Papá is an Oxford man, and if you allude in even the most roundabout way to your so-called brilliant career at a redbrick university, you will not only have failed to ingratiate yourself with the family; you will have caused him to think you a temerarious fool for having dreamt of asking for my hand.
