Tragictory

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tra jik tor ee

Sentence: Lily stuck to her career plan, which was always to become a famous Opera singer...a real diva. She studied Italian, knew all the words to every aria and dreamed of debuting at La Scala or The Met. But her career plan was on a tragictory course. The one thing that she forgot was that she could not sing a note, never mind reach the high notes a soprano needs to achieve to become a star. Her frustration just made her become a demanding diva instead to her friends and family. Too bad, she never got a Handel on the old talent thing.

Etymology: Tragic (very sad; especially involving grief or death or destruction) & Trajectory (path, orbit)
