What's your irony?

I think we all do things that are not in line with our characters.
Some are by conscious choice like an environmentalist flying first class and owning a 50 foot gas guzzling yacht or a vegetarian eating a steak.
Others are more uncontrollable like diabetics that can't control their sweet tooth.

Some are completely innocent.

Mine for instance. I love the Christmas holiday.
That doesn't sound so bad.
But the fact that I'm an atheist and my favorite holiday is the birth of the son of a god I don't believe exists....hmmm

For me it's obviously not a religious connection but more of an emotional one.
I love the mood around the holiday.
I love the connection so many people have at this time.
The vibe in the air is amazing.

It's time to watch Christmas shows now.
Christmas story.
Christmas vacation.
Charlie Brown Christmas.
Rudolf...."I want to be a dentist".....

Not die hard! Don't get me started again.

Yeah, I know it's weird.

So what's your irony?

Having to be a stable and consistent leader, despite the fact that my personality constantly changes and evolves.

I am literally the most absurd guy, that needs to be the most consistent guy.

The irony kills me. I have never wanted to become a leader, I despise the responsibility, and I am not the smartest in the world, but I guess Fate decided it'd be funny to give me exactly what I do not seek.

If it makes you feel any better in reality it was a pagan holiday co-opted by the church as a way to bring the heathens into line.

Merry Christmas, heathen.

I don't actually feel bad about it.
No matter what started Christmas, nobody can deny that it has changes over the centuries into something completely different.

Much like Halloween.
It's about costumes and candy.
Nothing more.

Hi Blunt1.
Can't give-up duality.
This BS world, and our ridiculous societies.

The ego negotiated, and stayed its execution.
But now, as it does, it's trying to run the show again.

Irony and sarcasm are usually wasted because most people just don't get it.

Don't feel bad. Like most of Christianity, the holiday was stolen from much older traditions; Saturnalia for example.

My irony is I generally don't like people that much but I get lonely.

Just a note of correction:

Diabetes, whether Type I or Type II, has absolutely nothing to do with “having a sweet tooth”.

Type I diabetes is the result of the pancreas being unable to produce insulin. This condition is often the result of an autoimmune response which causes the body to attack its own pancreas.

Type II diabetes is the result of the body becoming resistant to the insulin it can still produce. Although this resistance can be exacerbated by excess weight, the condition itself is usually caused by an inherited genetic pre-disposition to the disease. Obesity can trigger the development of T2 diabetes in people who carry the genetic propensity for the disease.

Many Type II diabetics are of normal weight.

My irony is that after becoming a grandmother I allow the grandkids to do all of the things that I absolutely forbid my children from doing.

"You want dessert before dinner? Sure!"
"You want to stay up until midnight playing video games? Have at it!"
" Sure you can watch that nightmare inducing movie! Let Granny make some popcorn!"
"Mama said no? Well you're at Granny's house now aren't you?"

I meant that people with diabetes need to have a strick diet or it throws blood sugar out of whack.
I know several type 2 diabetics that have a sweet tooth and suffer for it.

Don't know how you took my post as meaning weight issues.

I live my life on a schedule and organized, but my house tends to be a cluttered wreck, not dirty, just cluttered.

And given the extent possible ancestry due to my national back ground...God is laughing.

I love people and conversing with them all day, but after work, I don’t like to socialize. I get invited to go out all the time by my neighbor, but I have no interest.

I’m a total recluse; I do manage to see my best friends on occasion, mostly talk on the phone.

I am perfectly consistent in every conceivable way. Sorry I couldn't help.
