Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4989
mumpsimus, scuppernong, aghast, muster

(with apolgies for leaving a word out of my first posting--my only excuse the copious amounts of scupppernong -like beverages I have actually consumed in this, the last day of my vacation):

Seven bottles of scuppernog into the evening my wife did not even try to disabuse me of my mumpsimus belief that a beautiful mermaid was in love with me, but, early the next morning when she mustered me, she seemed quite content at how aghast I was over her posting pictures of my rather amorous embrace of the wooden figurehead that adorned the prow of the S.S. Booze Cruise.
