I just got back from lunch at Panda Express. I believe this is the first time in my life that I have ever eaten Chinese (or americanized chinese) without chopsticks. The reason, they were out! How does a chinese restaurant run out of chopsticks? Especially when they aren't in high demand down here in Chula Vista? I somehow doubt that the majority of the patrons would use chopsticks, so they should have a big pile for me to pick from!
After a little discussion with Bob about how it's ironic that Panda Express, a Chinese restaurant, wouldn't have chopsticks, we decided to make up a new word. See, we both thought it was ironic, but that it shouldn't be. So what is a word for something that is ironic, but really shouldn't be? We rattled through a few candidates for the new adjective and came down to quasironic. I think it's a fabulous word and I intend to add it to my daily vocabulary.
Quasironic (kwa zy ron ick) also quas.i.ron.i.cal (kwa zy ron ick uhl)
1. An idea or thing that is ironic, but should not be.
2. The state of being partially ironic, but not completely.
3. Vague or undefined irony.
My goal is to say it at least twice a day until it is natural. What'dya think?
um, Ryan...what did you and Bob have to drink with your chopstickless lunch???
Please tell me how you used your new word today, like send me the sentences you said with your new word in it...very interested. I think you could have written your own dictionary by now with all the words you have invented.
I will be a spreader of the new word...
