Serendipity

Posted on April 30th, 2014

Dave!I once dated a girl who introduced me to the word "serendipity."

By using it repeatedly.

Absolutely everything was "serendipity" to her. Come across an empty parking space in a crowded lot? Serendipity. Find something you were needing to buy on sale? Serendipity. The rain stops just before you walk out the door? Serendipity. Nab the last bottle of your favorite fabric softener off the shelf? Serendipity. Your mother calls just before your boyfriend is making his move? Serendipity.

We didn't date for very long, but I really ended up hating that word. Her constant over-use ruined it for me.

ser·en·dip·i·ty (/serənˈdipitē/)
the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.
"a fortunate stroke of serendipity"

But a while back I saw a really good commercial for Subaru that had me revisiting the word again...

Find your soulmate when you pick up a woman who ran out of gas?

Now that's serendipity.

I love a really good commercial.

Almost as much as a loathe a really bad one.
