People have this strange tendency to use the word travesty around me. (If you didn’t know, Travis is my middle name—this may be why.)
So he gets this grin on his face, thinking he’s so clever, and says, “Blogging on a Friday instead of going on a date WOULD BE A TRAVESTY!”
No. No it wouldn’t. Travesty doesn’t mean tragedy!
trav·es·ty /ˈtravistē/It comes from the latin tra- (to change) and vestire (clothing). So it means to dress up. It’s a fake something that looks like the real thing. A mockery.
noun: A false, absurd, or distorted version of something.
synonyms: parody, mockery, spoof
