Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 5133
procrustes, transhumance, zero-sum, psaltery
Unfortunately our tour guide was a procrustes who viewed his job as some kind of dreary transhumance, a zero-sum game in which individual pleasures taken by members of the touring herd must directly subract from his own peace of mind, and so I made sure to subtract greatly from that peace by playing the psaltery--delightful instrument!--as much as I could.
