That's what it is, irony. Or perhaps sarcasm. I've never been sure which is which.
But here's the deal: THERE ARE NO AVOCADOS ON MY TREE! NONE! NEVER HAVE BEEN AND NEVER WILL BE!
I was being - I think - IRONIC. Like, ho ho ho, yes indeed, this year we have 10,000 avocados, AND, see, to show the irony, I can also play basketball just like I could when I was 'way younger. See?
No, I can't dribble around a dead man. And there are NO AVOCADOS. I WISH I had avocados. I'd LOVE to have avocados. And I'm playing basketball tomorrow morning and I will WISH I weren't practically nailed to the floor. But I am. And I don't.
Is that irony? Sarcasm? Or pure curmudgeon?
