Ironic “Ironic”

I was watching the voice the other day and one of the songs being performed was “Ironic” by Alanis Morissette. It triggered a memory of a conversation over drinks me and my buddy JD had when the song was extremely popular  about the fact that some of the situations outlined in ironic is really not that ironic at all.
For instance rain on your wedding day is bad luck.
Or a fly in your Chardonnay is just a downright nuisance
Even a traffic jam when you are late is a hassle.
No smoking sign on your cigarette break??? Are we working on plane????
And meeting the wife of the man of your dreams??? Well I would call it a bloody shame.
Guess this is a great example of how desperate people get when they have writers block and need to complete a song on time.
Nevertheless it is a great song and I love listening to it.

Ha! Well, think if the name of the song changed to something else like unlucky,tragic or something along that line, it would have been ok. Come to think of it, "tragic" would have even rhymed with the rest of the lyrics. Cute song though
