Spelling Words of the Day

From http://www.m-w.com/game/

alfresco
juniper
imam
caboodle
gymnasium
bouillon
obsequious
meerschaum

I spelled obsequious wrong about three times, which is so stupid because it's from that line in Hamlet: ...and the survivor bound / In filial obligation for some term / To do obsequious sorrow: but to persever / In obstinate condolement... etc, etc. How many times have I done that play? All I could think of was "obstinate condolement."

The rest of the words I spelled correctly, of course, but that's because I'm a genius. I mean, who, really, can spell "bouillon" correctly on the first try? Yeah. No one.

Genius.
