As I was putting on some Simple moisturiser this morning (no colours/fragrances, etc) I thought "wouldn't it be funny if I had a reaction to this, when I'm not allergic to normal skin cream?".Would that be irony?<I'm fine, by the way>
Given this as one of the definitions:incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result I suppose it qualifies.
yes, i think so - they've gone out of their way to make it pure & not contain any irritants
Yup, that would be irony!
bit like being growled at by a chiauauasorry for the spelling, never had to write it before!
I saw a great little bit by a stand-up comic (can't remember who annoyingly) econstructing Alanis Morissette. It ended with"... the only way you being stuck in traffic is ironic is if you are the town planner!"
Trillian, it was Ed Byrne. He said everything I had been annoying my friends about saying for ages. I loved him for it!
