Clint Bowyer (driving for Richard Childress) in the 07 car started the race in 7th place and finished in 7th tonight at Daytona in the Pepsi 400.

It'* like rain on your wedding day
It'* a free ride when you've already paid
It'* the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought ... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
'Well isn't this nice...'
And isn't it ironic ... don't you think
Repeat Chorus


Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything'* okay and everything'* going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything'* gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

It'* a traffic jam when you're already late
It'* a no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It'* like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It'* meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic... don't you think
A little too ironic... and yeah I really do think...
Repeat Chorus


Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

Vital, as a standup comedian pointed out, none of her examples are "ironic". Tragic, maybe, but not ironic....

Quote:
American Heritage Dictionary - Cite This Source
i·ron·ic adj.
Characterized by or constituting irony.
Given to the use of irony. See Synonyms at sarcastic.
Poignantly contrary to what was expected or intended: madness, an ironic fate for such a clear thinker.

Usage Note: The words ironic, irony, and ironically are sometimes used of events and circumstances that might better be described as simply "coincidental" or "improbable," in that they suggest no particular lessons about human vanity or folly.
