JusJoJan — Serendipity

For today’s Just Jot It January prompt from Linda G. Hill, Jill from J-Dubs Grin and Bear It, suggested the word “serendipity.”

Serendipity, according to Dictionary.com, means “the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.”

I like to think that my being set up on a blind date with the woman who eventually became my wife was a serendipitous occurrence.

But when I think of the word “serendipity,” two things come to mind. One is the blog by that name published my Marilyn Armstrong.7506a8d2-71dd-4ac9-ac27-37e42a591913You should check out her blog if you’re not already one of her more than 11,000 followers.

The other “serendipity” I think of is the restaurant in New York City’s Upper East Side, Serendipity 3.86517c4d-c4c9-4914-b717-c0234b1c9f47The menu at this nearly 70-year-old American restaurant includes burgers, footlong hotdogs, thick-cut fries, country meat loaf, four different pastas, and chicken pot pie. But desserts are the real draw, including Serendipity’s famous frozen hot chocolate and its outsized sundaes.4f2acea7-2a82-4aee-b10c-f2acd270507eI’ve only been there a few times, but whenever I went to NYC, which is rare these days since I live in San Francisco now, I made a point of stopping by for dessert at Serendipity 3.
