Irony rules!

I thought about writing this blog entry earlier today whilst in a meeting – though my mind was completely on the meeting.

I was quite happily drinking a can of Coke that I had bought in the break during this meeting when I had in front of me the 2 opposing motions on Coca-Cola. In fact, a significant proportion of us were also drinking Coke at this point. Some of us were discussing (before we got down to the pedantry of improving the wording of the motions so that all you guys know what you’re voting for) how our choice of drink was not in any way intending to make a political statement. It was just what was convenient to buy during our break.

I love it when things like that happen. It happens to me so much – and it’s not just a recent thing either. Another such example (though completely unrelated) is when one of my memories I have from long ago came back to me. It happened in almost exactly the same circumstances as the original memory – the biggest difference actually being that it was several years later and therefore I understood far better what was actually happening so it was just a complete coincidence that the situation was repeated almost exactly.

It could make quite interesting debate seeing if anyone else just seems to attract irony. Post something ironic in the comments section if you want. It would be good to know that I’m not the only one who seems to be living their life by irony.

    I wonder if anyone would have complained more if someone had been on composite wearing a kippah? Tbh I didn’t mind people drinking coke if they just happened to be drinking it, but i refuse to believe that it was all coincidence
