irony; noun

  • a literary technique, originally used in Greek tragedy, by which the full significance of a character’s words or actions is clear to the audience or reader although unknown to the character.

  • a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often wryly amusing as a result.

Hey Mike. I’m your dad. You know, normally Mike is a guy’s name. Other kids might give you a little flak for it. But… Mike was my brother’s name. And if you knew him, I’m sure you wouldn’t mind.

And that is the only thing in life we can predict, the only thing we truly know. Everybody’s story ends the same way.
