Maria Cooper was a world class chef, and yet, she still couldn’t make a salad dressing. Either the olive oil was too bland or the vinegar was too sharp, she just couldn’t make it. Finally, she’d had enough, and in her frustration she spilled the whole container of salt into the salad she had been working on, though she didn’t notice it. A few hours later, Maria pulled out the same salad for dinner, forgetting about what happened earlier. She tasted it and found it was the best salad she’d ever tasted and never messed up her salad dressing again.
