      the worthless word for the day is: peripeteia

      [Gk peripeteia] also peripetia
      a sudden or unexpected reversal of circumstances
      or change of events esp. in a literary work

      "If they had been twins separated in infancy, and now
      revealed to one another by some birthmark or other
      perepetia, they couldn't have been more exhilarated."
      - Wallace Stegner, Crossing to Safety (1987)
