i am unable to identitfy a language technique in this quote.


Hi, i was wondering if someone can help me identify a technique in this quote:

  • “I’ve had quite a few opportunities to lose my virginity and all, but I’ve never got around to it yet. Something always happens.”

The quote is from the book The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger.

It shows the use of a paradox as she says she has a few opportunities and then contradict it saying that “I’ve never got around to it.” And next sentence clarifies this contradiction that she never got any opportunity.
