Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 7777
nidifugous, gassy, prescind, realia, n.
The fact that chickens have nidifugous young is doubly inconvenient because not only are the chicks wandering about annoyingly almost the instant their feathers are dry, but--while a clutch of chicks going in all directions may sound adorable--the realia of the situation may include cats, dogs, and young children with a fondness for squeezing things, not to mention how even an adult may prescind in order to consider the day's activities, place a foot wrong, and end up with a gassy little corpse instead of a cute ball of fluff.
