Thus, Ironika’s life itself was the one big irony.
From r/WritingPrompts: You’re beginning to grow suspicious your long time girlfriend of ten years is actually just Shaqille O’Neal in a wig.
It started a week ago. We were talking about foreign policy and she said something rather smart, which I don’t recollect any more.
