What is the difference in Descriptive Writing, Expository Writing, and a narrative?
Descriptive writing is used to "paint a picture,' in the reader's mind. It uses detail and imagery so the reader can "see," the text. Expository writing is informational writing. Its purpose is to educate the reader about the given topic. A narrative is a writing that tells a story of some sort. It is usually in chronological order.

The irony is defined as the lack of agreement between expectation and reality. This passage is most definitely an example of Irony, due to Timmy's ironic behavior. More specifically, this would be considered situational irony due to the fact that Timmy reversed the expectations that the audience had upon him as a character.
