Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 7396
claustrophobia, words fail someone, bloviate, porphyrogenite, n.
I am, at this present time, hidden within this tiny box - even though the claustrophobia it is causing is my worst nightmare and my heart is pounding at the confinement - trying desperately to write an answer to the ransom note that I have only just recently received, second-class post, ostensibly from a rather roguish rake dressed in the porphyogenite shade of purple of the old royal families that, sadly, are: no longer with us; present here today; still existing in notable circles; able to attend the current occasion; do not, now, have the willpower to get out of the house once in a while; be contenders; and finally, but not least of all; wear crowns and tiaras to parties and balls- and yet, though I can bloviate like a master, I have written not a word, and can think of nothing at all that can be put down on paper; be it ever so short or simple - which, ironically, is what I... oh, words here do fail me!
