FML - The follow-up

Today, I saw a woman breastfeeding at the natural foods market. It's the first time I've seen a woman's nipple in over two years. I've been married for ten. FML

After going through my thoughts on the situation and re-evaluating the meaning of what I thought something was, as in believing two moments such as this not needing to contradict the other (which it seems it does), my comment has fallen into dismay. It's not irony but just purely coincidental. While I'm glad that my understanding of Irony has been cleared up, I'm sad that my prior comments have taken a turn for the worst.

Irony and a coincedence are mixed up a lot nowadays. my younger cousins (around 10 and 12 years old) kept saying "that's ironic!" for everything. when i explained what the true definition for irony was, they came up with their own scenario: a burglar enters a house and the house's guard dog attacks the house's master. i dont know what runs through their minds o.O

Ok... "Natural Food" + breast milk, arguably one of the most natural foods on the planet... I say that's a decent example of irony. Not great maybe, but it's still mild irony. You wouldn't necessarily expect to see that.

#4 and #15 only count as irony if the breasts were demonstrably *unnatural*. A baby breastfeeding from a woman with fake tits inside of a natural foods store--that's irony.

76: That's the opposite of irony; it's appropriate (albeit in an amusing way). Irony is when something is contrary to the situation in an amusing way. For example, a deer hunting with a rifle is ironic. A fuel truck running out of gas is ironic. An unsinkable ship sinking on its maiden voyage is ironic. A penguin relaxing on a warm, sandy beach is ironic. Steve Jobs with an Android phone is ironic. Hope this helps.

A traffic jam when you're already late A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife It's meeting the man of my dreams And then meeting his beautiful wife And isn't it ironic...don't you think A little too ironic...and, yeah, I really do think...

#77 Why would I argue in this situation? It would only make me look like an ignoramus, especially after Pleo gave a well-reasoned argument alongide my own clarification methods. I was wrong and I acknowledge that. P.S., 89, if I knew what classified a poem, I'd say you did a nice job at one :P

#87 was quoting a song by Alanis Morisette. Ah thank you 90's with a song devoted to explaining irony. Sadly my high school classmates still didn't get irony even with that song being pumped into every where and every station ever. Kinda... Ironic.

Reply

106: Just like #115 said, the most ironic part of that song was that most of the examples in it aren't ironic. Just because Alanis Morisette says something is ironic doesn't make it true. A hit song about irony that misunderstands the meaning of irony--that's ironic.

Touché good sir, Touché. I will avoid commenting on 2 hrs sleep. You are correct they are more unfortunate coincidences. That'll teach me to be witty and sleep deprived lol

No, that's bs. He's been married for ten years and hasn't seen his wife naked in two, that's messed up, and I would run, run as far and as fast as your little legs will carry you, because its only going to get worse...

I will soon. It's been a matter of finances. Marriage counseling isn't covered on insurance and we haven't had the funds to consider it. But that's getting better and I see that as a possibility in the near future. If she will agree to it. I know I can go on my own and will if I have to. We'll see.

@143 I'm actually rather impressed than you want to work this out instead of just getting a divorce or cheating. You obviously love your wife dearly if you want to fix this so badly. I hope you and your wife can get counseling and find a solution to this problem. It's possible your wife has underlying issues that cause her not to want to have sex that one or both of you aren't aware of (like depression, a sudden lack of a desire for sex or pleasure from sex, pain during sex etc.) I'm guessing ot
