Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4807
cockshy, green gown, decussate, whangdoodle

Question 3 of the multiple choice Questionnaire for Aspiring Actresses, evidently compiled by a wiseacre studio whangdoodle or flamboyant dingbat, wanted to know whether Hortense Bracegirdle was cocksure, cockshy or both, and question 8 asked whether she minded playing in overlapping scenes involving multiple decussating lovers or was overly worried that she might be typecast and forever stigmatized as a green gown diva.
