There are no accidents.
I was destined to be served coffee a' la ginger tea.
One breakfast morning, our helper asked me what I wanted to eat and I asked if she could prepare me coffee instead, while I look after my kid. After a few minutes, she had a hot cup of coffee for me. I took a few sips and took note of the unusual spice in my coffee. Initially, I thought it was because it was hot and singed my tongue a bit. But when I was halfway through it, I was sure that I tasted ginger.
I called for the helper and asked what she put in it. She mixed instant coffee, sugar and creamer. I asked what was the color of the sugar she used. She told me it was light brown. And then I knew. She placed instant salabat instead of sugar. I asked if I wanted to replace the coffee and I told her it was okay and that I was going to finish all of it. It was so unconventional that it was so good.
Sometimes, we need to let accidents happen in order to enjoy the good stuff.
