Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 5016
penny-ante, badinage, lackadaisical, Tennis elbow

I suddenly realized that the badinage my friends and I always spouted, though fun, was essentially penny-ante and lackadaisical; even if one of us brought up tennis elbow or some other malady, our conversation would always slip away from the idea of doing anything about it.

(And yesterday, corrected. "Whoever stole my truck, 'fess up!", Herman hollered, causing all members of the marauding yet incompetent gang to form a tight phalanx while at first feeling penitent; however, all of them (except Morris, who was wondering if the strange feeling in his left middle finger's middle phalanx was in fact osteopenia) eventually realized that they didn't, in fact, steal Herman's truck and were four-flushing by bundling up so tight.)
