The Definition of Irony

  1. Kid leaves open trumpet case in the very center of bedroom floor.
  2. In morning, Mom takes other kid to nine-hour daily musical theater camp.
  3. While mom is gone, kid goes racing up stairs and into room.
  4. Kid smashes foot on trumpet case.
  5. Mom comes home.
  6. Kid informs mom that he thinks he broke a toe or two.
  7. Mom calls doctor's office for appointment.
  8. The only available appointment is at the precise time of the weekly trumpet lesson.
  9. Mom calls trumpet instructor to inform her that kid probably broke toes on trumpet case and can't come to lesson because fixing toes will be happening at the time the lesson should take place.
  10. Doctor is informed that on any other day at the time we are visiting her, we would be at a trumpet lesson. Doctor thinks the story is very funny.
  11. Trumpet instructor says, "Well, okay. Tell him no foot tapping when he practices!"

To use the vernacular: "Well, that blows!"

Nance, you're such a wit! I'll share that with the trumpet instructor next week if kid is able to hobble in. Yeah, he blew it, all right. Or stepped in it.
