Isn't it Ironic?

"Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right;
And life has a funny way of helping you out when

You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face."

Have I mentioned before that I'm very Virgo? Surely my last couple of posts didn't give it away...

While I've always loved this gem by Alanis Morrisette, until recently I never fully embraced the idea that the snippet of prolific prose above is actually the point of the entire song - NOT all the other verses in which things have gone horribly -if poetically- wrong. Nice little bit of "things happen for a reason" veiled optimism if you ask me.
