    Find the irony!

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Islander, Aug 7, 2010.

    Here's a game I just came up with.

    Describe a normal, non-ironic situation, for example:

    Today, I ate a pizza.

    Then the next player adds information to make the situation ironic.

    I had to watch my weight, so I ordered a vegetarian pizza with mozarella. Unfortunately, the take-out pizza place was out of mozarella, so they gave me triple cheese as compensation.

    and adds another non-ironic situation for the next player.

    No member may post more than once per ten-post page, nor respond to his or her own post (at a page boundary).

    First one:

    I paid $15 000 for my new car.

    Yesterday I paid $15 000 for my new car. I was skyrocketing with pride. Too bad I screwed up my driver's license exam today.

    Next:
    I just found out that I had cancer.

    I am a doctor and my spouse left me late last year. I did not know about the news until my journalist-patient spilled the beans. Yes,you heard right. My ex-wife is having a child and did not tell me. What's worse, she named him after our more-than-difficult relationship.

    My hat flew out the window, fortunately when the city bus crashed a mile down the road. I lost my head as well. :p
