I spent a good two hours of my time trying to explain to a friend the proper way to use the word ironic.
I tried to give him the dictionary definition.
I put the word in sentences.
I acted out a few scenes
I started singing alanis morrissette to him
and he still would not get it.
Then he tells me about this problem he's having right before he leaves for a barbecue
so i say enjoy the barbecue
and he says its ironic you say that
how is that ironic i ask
he says because I'm feeling bad and your telling me to enjoy myself.
We are not friends anymore.
He is not allowed to speak to me unless he learns how to use the word
OR erase it from his vocabulary all together!!
Got it R!
I don't want to hear from you until then!
