It's like rain on your wedding day.
It's a free ride when you've already paid.
It's the good advice that you just didn't take.
Who would've thought... it figures.
It's like a character in the biggest scene
Refusing to do what I need.It's a plot line that comes to me
When I'm buying groceries.
Of course when I don't have... paper.
It's like replacing something you've lost
and finding it that very same day.
It's finally having time to write all I want.
And no words will come... whatever.
Or, more specific to A to Z...
It's like finding Elegance during G
and having many ideas for Z during B.
It's the perfect Muse
When we are all in the U's.
A to Z, next time won't you sing with me.
Okay, a poet (or songwriter) I am not. But I do find irony fascinating. Rarely does a day go by without it.
On a more personal note, my husband and I tried for 18 months to have our first child. We didn't worry about getting pregnant again easily. So when she turned one, guess what our gift was? A positive pregnancy test for number two. Isn't it ironic?
We also thought there was a bit of irony in the title of our book, Depression Cookies. I have a sugar addiction, so there's nothing depressing about cookies to me.
From Wikipedia: a situation is often said to be ironic if the actions taken have an effect exactly opposite from what was intended.
However, the more I looked into defining irony, the more confusing the concept became. Some people take their irony very seriously.
Wouldn't it be ironic if I wrote a whole post misusing irony?!
