Discombobulated, Part 1: Isn’t It Ironic?

6:41 pm · category: Uncategorized

I am writing this as a present ot myself. I have no illusions of the final product being anything worth reading. I was taught that one should write what one knows. I am a little over a quarter-century old. I don’t know much.

I don’t mean that I’m stupid. I mean that I lack experience and wisdom. The fact that I would bother putting this to paper in the first place only points to my lack of experience and wisdom.

This is what English teachers call “irony.” The textbook definition of irony is “the difference between appearance and reality.” What the hell does that mean? I’m an English teacher, but I don’t get it.

That is another example of irony.
