surquedry

Bit of a non sequitur if you’ve come here looking for stuff about my imminent trip to India. That’s two posts down.

Sur·qui·dry n.

[OF. surcuidier to presume; sur over + cuidier to think, L. cogitare. See Sur-, and Cogitate.]
Overweening pride; arrogance; presumption; insolence. [Obs.] Chaucer.

Then pay you the price of your surquedry.

Spenser.
