Irony
Comments 2

Here’s one for you…

“When one begins to live by habit and by quotation, one has begun to stop living.”
James Baldwin

Irony abounds… my keyboard is positively dripping with it.
And adding insult to injury, here’s a list of Baldwin quotes on Buzz Feed.
Apparently, those fine Buzzards are (perhaps) not as up to speed on the whole 
sardonic scene as you might wish. They put the above quote quite far
down in the list – number 24 of 25, to be exact.

Me?
I woulda put that sucker right up at the top…

Or is it the quote that’s being secretly ironic, and I’m the one who’s missed the boat?
Maybe even Baldwin, himself, was pulling a fast one on us.
Oh, man, now I’m all confused…
