I’m the type of person who gets extremely frustrated when I burn something. Believing the effort was a waste of time, I throw my hands up in the air, give up and chalk the night up to being a failure.
I had a minor epiphany tonight though as I finished my last undergraduate project ever and prepared for my graduation this weekend. A celebration was in order and what would a celebration be without cupcakes!?! I decided to just live and stop trying to be so perfect (but of course it just comes so naturally to me jk :).
So, tonight when I spilled the cup cake batter all over… I kept baking. When I melted the frosting container on the stove…I kept baking. When I put the frosting in the freezer and it froze up a little too much..I kept baking. I didn’t give up and you know what?
It was a happy accident 🙂
Just for the fun of it I typed “Happy Accident” into Google and I found in 2001 there was a movie called, you guessed it, Happy Accident. It stars that super intelligent quirky guy from Law and Order, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Marisa Tomei, probably most recognizable from My Cousin Vinny and The Wrestler. Surprisingly, Happy Accident has 7.4 Stars on IMDb. I’ll let you watch the trailer and decide for yourself.
Sam: I’m different.
Ruby: You’re gay! You’re a Jew for Jesus? It’s that tattoo. It’s a cult. You’re in a cult. You’re a Branch Davidian? You’re a Survivalist?
Ruby: You’re a pimp and Chrystie Delancey’s one of your sluts!
Sam: I am not a pimp!
Sam: You know, I’ve never told a woman the things I’ve told you. You are the first and… the only. You’re… the one and only. You know… I… I… I feel like… ah… I feel like my whole life has just been a journey into your arms.
In case melty cupcake goodness and a romantic flick weren’t enough there’s also a song…
