Sentence: Georgina's day just went from bad to worse. It was a karmadyoferrors. She didn't make it to the toaster before it flung her bread on the sweep-needed floor. Her heel broke while racing for the bus. Everyone on the public transit stared aghast at her, as she had only applied eye make-up to one eye, not the other and had forgotten her make-up case at home. When she got to her office, her computer had crashed and the milk she put in her coffee curdled. She went to the ladies' room to sort out herself and freshen up. Of course, Fate has a way of telling you who your real friends are at work. She walked into the meeting with the new Japanese gentlemen clients and was not advised that her second and third buttons on her shirt had popped open or that the back of her skirt had been inadvertantly caught in the top of her pantyhose. She smiled apologetically, but that spinach salad she had at lunch had lodged itself between each of her front teeth and blacked out two of them. Yup, she looked real purty...

Etymology: Karma (the effects of a person's actions that determine his destiny in his next incarnation) & Comedy of Errors (A humorous occurrence).
