Today, my boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary. I had cooked him a romantic meal and we were planning on eating it in front of the fire. This would have gone great had I not forgotten to unblock the chimney. My entire basement filled with smoke and didn't clear for three hours. FML

Why F OP's life for cooking? I think it was very sweet of OP for cooking. In a relationship you do nice things for one another, if you feel like that makes your life suck you are doing something wrong.

Should of, should have. Not a huge error. I've seen worse errors. I understand OP could have "forgotten", but it was her anniversary. I don't know if it's just me but when I do things for a special event I make sure everything is cleared, and that nothing could go wrong. Well at least plan wise. The only thing that has gone wrong is that the person didn't show up, or I didn't have everything I wanted but settled. I feel pity that all of Ops hard work was ruined, but she deserves it for the reason that she didn't plan very well. She knew she was using the fire place, she should of made sure it was unblocked.

I know that it is would have, could have, and should have. However it feels unnatural to say all of that over the word of. It's something I have always said. I am not uneducated and I know proper grammar, so I ask that you do not act as if I am some uneducated little twit. Could of is not a huge error, as a matter a fact it's actually very minor in comparison to others that I have seen.

Irony: 1. The use of words to convey a meaning opposite if its literal meaning.
2. An intention or attitude opposite to that which is actually stated.

Your experience wasn't ironic.

I think there's a floor vent in the chimney which leads to the basement. Or there chimney's in the basement. Not sure, I'm almost as lost as you...
