Wednesday Words (2)

Serendipitous is an adjective that describes an unexpected or chance event that has a good outcome. A more common synonym might be fortuitous, but serendipitous is by far the superior word in my opinion. Try saying it a few times to yourself, or maybe to the people in the office around you. Pleasing, no?
