Question of the Day, 57:
"How is that ironic?"
-- Me, to Matt the other day.
My brother, Matt, mentioned to me the other day that he'd gone on a cruise with his family not too long ago. I asked him the same thing I ask everyone who I know has gone somewhere: "Did you send me a postcard?"
I collect postcards, you see. I have probably 200 of them from all over the world. So if I know someone's going somewhere, I tell them to send me a postcard. When I found out Matt (who knows about the whole Postcard Collection Thing) had gone somewhere, I asked him if he'd sent me a postcard.
"No, that's ironic," he said. "I had a postcard to send you, one I picked out and wrote and was ready to mail, but I just didn't mail it."
So I said: "How is that ironic? It sounds more like lazy."
