I thought I’d give myself a shot at baking.
I walked the isles of the supermarket,
bought all the ingredients,
went home and followed the recipe.
Step. By. Step.
The result was
– for the umpteenth time -,
a burnt mess.
But this taught me a life lesson
and I won’t barter a precious life lesson
for a well-baked banana chocolate muffin.
And the lesson learnt is that even when you follow rules,
that doesn’t always take you where you wanted to get.
Some may call it laziness of buying a balance like grown-ups do,
some others inability of complying with the suggested grams of sugar,
me, I just call it serendipity.
Because things may not always be what I was hoping for,
By the way,
my muffins sucked.
