Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 498
clinquant, astraphobia, dulse, baptism of fire
As I understand it, ma'am, these accusations of dipsomania began on a stormy beach vacation -- a cruel baptism of fire for a new bride with astraphobia -- the end result being this video your husband has; showing you, intoxicated, emerging from the sea-foam like Aphrodite, covered in clinquant dulse, reflecting the sky-fire like Christmas tinsel on a delirious, drunken conifer.
