Something pleasant or useful found while looking for something else. Inspired by a Persian fairy story, "The Three Princes of Serendip".
I initially wanted to date Moira, but she turned out to be an awful bore and she snorted when she laughed, which I can't stand. She did however get me in touch with a car dealer who makes really cool custom cars, top quality and dirt cheap, three of which I bought within a year. That was a real piece of serendipity.

3. A 2001 romantic comedy, starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale
I was walking along the streets of New York City thinking of the 2001 hit romantic comedy Serendipity when I looked up and saw that I was right in front of the small shop Serendipity. If that doesn't describe the brilliance of sheer serendipity, I don't know what does.
