I think I know this one..

Today's Word o' the day is... surreptitious

Not as obscure as many, I've heard of it, I think I even know what it means, kind of, and may have actually used it once or twice. I would say it means something like.. um, secretive, sneaky? Sorta.

The dictionary says, done, made, or gotten by stealth; also, marked by stealth.

Kay.

That's all. Except I'll leave you with this quote:

The monitoring is not surreptitious; on the contrary, the defendant and his or her attorney are required to be given notice of the government's listening activities.
"-- John Ashcroft, "National Security; Prevention of Acts of Violence and Terrorism", Federal Register 66, no. 211, October 26, 2001"
Catch ya later.
