Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 543
decennium, contumelious, embargo, constitutional
"Would you believe it, all I said was (as I've been saying every day this last decennium) 'Let's go out for our postprandial peregrination, my dear' - but, blow me, she goes and places an immediate embargo on 'any more of your stupid, bloody words' and storms out on her own for a companionless constitutional - which, if you ask me, is pretty damn contumelious behaviour, up with which I shall not put!"
