Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 602
vatic, go the extra mile, triskaidekaphobia, lapidary
For my apprentice piece in monumental masonry I went the extra mile on that bit of lapidary legerdemain, I can tell you, but - call me vatic - not two weeks later (I think it was a Friday) superstitious old aunt Judy (worth a bob or two) goes and dies right there and then in front of me, her only relative, and funnily enough I didn't need to change a single word, since it already read: In Memory of Judy Scarrot / spinster, / triskaidekaphobic and / paraskevidekatriaphobic / of this parish / passed away / 13th April 2007."
