Somehow, this is supposed to be sarcastic and, quite frankly, I should be able to do that with my eyes close, considering how dysfunctional life or our family can be, sometimes. At the same time, I suppose, if you have to go look up the definition of “sarcasm”, it’s probably not something that you exhibit in your life, too much. Webster says; Sarcasm: a sharp and often satirical or ironic utterance designed to cut or give pain 2 a: a mode of satirical wit depending for its effect on bitter, caustic, and often ironic language that is usually directed against an individual.
Kind of like the video I just watched of a guy riding his motorcycle down a long and winding two-lane road…going around a curve that bends to the right, with no shield on his helmet, just as a bug hits him in the teeth at fifty miles per hour and, in a split second, he thinks to himself how it felt to the bug when he smashed into the riders’ teeth. Drifting in thought, as he glides around the gentle curve against a mountain, the rider crosses the double-yellow and, 2-ton flatbed truck honks his horn, just before the motorcyclist has a head-on collision with the truck.
I heard a line in a movie the other night, where a police officer said; “The answers are out there, Lou! You just have to look for them.” We’ve all heard the saying; “Be careful what you ask for…you’re liable to get it.” Maybe, we should be careful even about what we “wonder about” silently in our minds. You never know how unsuspecting, or ironic the circumstances may be that we learn the answer. I’m just sayin’
