Too Tired for Anything Else

Word of the Day 10:
1540, from L. sedulus "attentive, painstaking," probably from sedulo (adv.) "sincerely, diligently," from sedolo "without deception or guile," from se- "without, apart" (see
secret) + dolo, ablative of dolus "deception, guile," cognate with Gk. dolos.
