Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 5468
iliad, blueberrying, pratfall, aphesis
"Just as a girl goes blueberrying in the bushes, Achilles plucked the Trojans from their hiding places," or perhaps, "As a giant oak falls in the forest, Hector took a tremendous pratfall," or then again, (trying to sound smarter) "Just as a word loses its first letter in aphesis, the Trojan warrior lost his head in battle," Sylvia struggled awkwardly as she began her first amateurish efforts to construct a Homeric simile like those she so much admired in the Iliad, but the chortles and chuckles of her classmates told her she still had a long way to go.
