Fortuitous

Fortuitous


Pronounced:
<for-two-ah-tis>
Lucky.  Lucky meeting.

My use:
It was a fortuitous day when we've met.  I was lucky to meet someone like you.

Literary use:
 
It was from causes seemingly fortuitous . . . that all the mighty effects of the Reformation flowed.

So as to throw a glancing and fortuitous light upon the whole
--Hazlitt.


Memory trick:
Fortuitous
Fortu (reminds of) = fortune
it (reminds of) = it
o (reminds of) = oh
us (reminds of) = us
fortune - it - oh - us
