Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 6642
cunctation, Hilary term, effrontery, crambo

But this was the day on which something would happen to change many lives and relationships. on which Christiane would turn and show her true self, her effrontery knowing no bounds, her unwillingness to accept cunctation in these circumstances; oh, elsewhere it might be Hilary Term, in Bowden it was the day on which the Flames of Indignation Burned, and the Worm Turned (if you will forgive a hackneyed crambo, and the comparison of Christiane with a Worm, but I did not want to use a metaphore which would emphasise her size, uh oh, another crambo, I do beg forgiveness again, but I am heavy with a cold and my mind is congested) and gave them all such a tongue lashing (not to be confused with her skills in the art of fellatio) the consequences of which would unravel many secret plans and concoctions for a long time to come!
