A song inquiring about irony while listing examples of situations that are merely unfortunate…hmm.
The 90s had plenty of hit songs, “Ironic” was definitely a top 10 amongst friends. I didn’t mind the lack of irony. I didn’t even process the potential lack of irony. I was too busy trying to nail notes and sing my lungs out. But if I were to contribute fitting scenarios (irony or non, mostly non)…I think they would be the following:
It’s…Running late, going back for something you need, not finding it, deciding to leave it behind then finding it in your purse as soon as you get in the car after stepping in gum kept extra sticky by the warmed pavement.
It’s…Cleaning your cat’s litter box only for him to pee on your couch.
It’s…Being seven minutes away from the ending of a show with a mystery, and your cable goes out.
It’s…Asking about your new passport that hasn’t shown up, finding out someone who wasn’t you signed for it, but no one knows where it went or who they were.
It’s…Making a pasta dish, draining the water, but you lose 75% of the noodles and must start again.
It’s…A summer day, where everything you decide to eat that isn’t refrigerated or frozen, has ants in it.
It’s…Attending a family function, heading to the desserts, but everyone forgot you’re allergic to tree nuts.
It’s…The day literally redefined to also mean figuratively.
And I think that, makes a good stopping point 🙂
