The Definition of Irony

We've spent the last couple of sunny days getting ready for a long-awaited spring break. I've managed to avoid, in the last two weeks, getting my husband's cold AND my son's cold.

So, of course, on the day we are to head off to our two-day retreat, I have awakened with a cold, and it's raining.

Mind you, I haven't been sick since last spring, so I've managed to stay healthy until the tiny two-day window when I really wanted to enjoy myself--then my body brought on the germs.

In a way, it was entirely predictable. :0

This is what the Ancient Greeks meant by reversal, isn't it?
