#coolprompts — Ironic

ironic-written-stoneRay, over at Rsynotbradbury.com has s new prompt that she’s calling #coolprompts. Today’s prompt is the word “ironic” and we’re supposed to write a post based on the word ‘ironic’ and use five more synonyms of the word ‘ironic’ in our posts. So here goes.

“Don’t you find it kind of ironic?” asked Margaret.

“I don’t know about ironic,” Sarah answered. “More unexpected than ironic.”

“Are you mocking me, Sarah?” Margaret said in a cynical way.

“Honestly, Margaret,” Sarah said, “I wasn’t being at all sarcastic.”

“Well, you coulda fooled me,” Margaret said. “You sounded pretty caustic.”

Sarah looked at Margaret. “You’re coming across as rather arrogant.”

“Me? You’re the one being ridiculous and hyper-critical,” Margaret said.

“Oh stop,” Sarah said.” I’m just bustin’ your chops, my dear. You know my wry wit. It can be biting, but it’s not meant to be disparaging.”

“Aren’t you the clever one,” Margaret responded.

“Now you’re being ironic,” Sarah said.

Both women started laughing.
