I Occasionally Snort When I Laugh…

If I suddenly awoke one morning to the sound of the Goddess commanding me to choose a catch-phrase, it would no doubt be "A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!" But as that one is more than likely taken, I’d have to settle on one of my personal favorites:

Irony is a most beautiful thing.

As my life is littered/filled with so many instances of beautiful irony, I can think of absolutely nothing better.

One such example would be my friend Susie. Susie, as it happens, enjoys poking fun of my southern-fried accent and throwing about little barbs like "Ya know… the word why only has one syllable." I, of course, can neither hear this alleged accent nor claim to know from whence the second syllable came.

The irony?

Susie is from New Yawk and sounds like it too.

As I said, irony is a most beautiful thing.

And though she is an ironic-kind of wench who makes me search (unsuccessfully, I may add) deep within myself for those hidden twangs, she does add quite a bit of humor in my life. For instance, it was Susie who introduced me to one of my favorite blogs of all time, Overheard in New York, which offers fabulous gems like the following:

Because You Love Me, Right? Honey?

Girl: Honey, are you listening to me?
Guy: No, I was thinking about putting my dick in your mouth.
Girl: Oh.

–Central Park

And, yes, I snorted on that one.

Be sure to visit Overheard and let me know what you think… If you don’t snort at least once, I’ll call you personally and let you count the syllables of my sweet southern twang for yourself.

Y’all enjoy now, ya’ hear?
