Have a scene my character has walked in on his teenage brother and his wife having a row she has just told his brother she is pregnant, neither are prepared, they are both still in high school and it is ended with her throwing up all over her husband, slapping him in the face and marching out. My character holds his brother whilst he sobs who then rolls over and says Happy Birthday. I want my character to sort of laugh - at the not quite irony of the situation because this is better than last years birthday where he tried to commit suicide and his sister assasinated his father. I don't want irony or bittersweet but can't think I know there is a word lol Any ideas? It is only Ironic if I am Alanis Morrisette and the Thesarus has Orange and Red as the alternative to bittersweet.
