And isn't it ironic?

i*rony* [ahy-ruh-nee]:
an outcome of events contrary to what was,
or might have been, expected.


Recently there has been someone who I was extremely close to that has made some decisions that have left me ... quite sad [to say the least].

Another friend noticed my spirits were down and informed me that he would be taking me out that night to get my mind off of "things."

He didn't tell me where we were going. It was a surprise.
He knows how I feel about surprises. But that is beside the point.

As it became clear we were leaving Cache Valley he said, "When sad things are going on I like to get out of town and away from whatever it is making me sad so I don't have to think about it."

Super cute and sweet, no?

I still had no idea where we were going or what we were doing. But, finally, when we got on the freeway past Brigham City he informed me where we were going. A city approximately 93.3 miles from Logan.

Irony is when the city 93.3 miles away that we were going to to get my mind off of said close person who made decisions that made me sad, is the same city said person is from.

I asked what we were going to do in the city 93.3 miles away. He said we were going to dinner and such-and-such restaurant.

Irony is when such-and-such restaurant is actually the same restaurant said person used to work at.

I didn't have the heart to tell the friend the comical irony in all of this. Bless his heart as the irony in my life continues to not surprise me day in and day out.

Welcome.to.my.life.

10 gold stars to you if this story actually made any sort of sense at all. I mean, does it? Does it make sense? Do you see the irony? Please see the irony. I need someone else to see the comical irony. Do.you.see.it?

I stumbled upon your lovely blog a few days ago (via Mr. & Mrs. C, I believe), and I understand. Though the trip was full of what I'm sure was painful irony, the friend who took you on it seems to be very special! This made me smile, ironically. :)

Hmmm.... P-town, at a place where AGPR worked? (just taking some guesses here). But I do see the irony... but at a time like that, you gotta give a friend credit for trying, right?? hopefully you were able to enjoy the evening regardless

Avree said...

Alison said...

And Krystal, I'm not allowed to work in a restaurant. That would be illegal....maybe it was CVB. JUST KIDDING!!! Seriously, it was not either of us.

I see the irony and it was incredible of who know who to take you there, even if it reminded you of I know who.

Now, I know who needs to shape up and become like you know who!

Some day all of this will make sense and hopefully by then I know who won't have missed the boat!

Makes perfect sense. It reminds me of that song Ironic by Alanis Morissette. Sorry, I can't help it, I have a song for everything. Listen to it...

Meg said...

Yes, it makes sense. I'm glad you could see the comicalness (it should be a word) in it all.

But, in all seriousness, what a sweet friend you have. First, to have noticed, and second to have done his best to make everything better.
