Word of the Day: Coincidental

Actually the word of the day could be "ironic" or "coincidental". As you may know, in American English usage people use the word "ironic" when they actually mean "coincidental."

My example today from a chat I had:

Me: Reminder: Gay Day @ Hogle Zoo, tomorrow at 1 PM. Wear red!
ItsTrue: ironically, I've never actually been to Hogle
Me: Ironically?
ItsTrue: I live in Salt Lake City
Me: Ah
ItsTrue: you'd think that'd be something I've done
ItsTrue: assumption, anyway.
