Irony is a Smartass

I recently wrote a short piece for my creative non-fiction class about my new house. I decided to lead in by imagining Robin Leach narrating. You know, a little irony; the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous guy talking about my foreclosure townhouse purchase.

When we workshopped it, it turns out people hated that part. Some people didn't even know who Robin Leach was. Can you imagine that? I mean, he even had a couple of shows on VH1 for a while there.

So when today "Juicy" by Biggie came on my iPod, one line reached out and slapped me in the face: "I made the change from a common thief, to Up Close and Personal with Robin Leach."

Irony, you are a smartass.
