In May of 2009, I was on the verge of scoring my first big client as an independent architect.I was willing to do anything to make it happen.

Here's what we want, son.It's real simple.We're opening a restaurant called Rib Town and we want it to be shaped like a cowboy hat.
A cowboy hat? That's brilliant.I love it! I mean, nothing says delicious like the inside of a cowboy hat, right? Look, I'm telling you, I'm your guy.I think I was born to design this building.I just I see it.
I don't see it.I don't see it.I don't see it.
What's so good about it?
Up all night?
I told these guys I have a vision for this thing.They want to see a pitch in a week and I got nothing.
Cute? I could be designing concert halls and bridges.Bridges so beautiful they could be in museums.And I could design those museums.But what am I designing instead? What has my career come to? A two-story Stetson with outdoor dining on the brim.It's a sick cosmic joke.The universe is conspiring against me.

You just need to get out of the house.Take a walk.Get a bagel.
Yeah, that'll solve everything.I haven't slept for 34 hours, but a bagel is the answer.A cinnamon raisin bagel with a little cream cheese.That sounds pretty good, I'm going to get a bagel.
Bring an umbrella.It's supposed to rain, according to Galoshes, our weather clown.
Your show has a clown who does the weather? That's a little cheesy, don't you think?
And what's that restaurant you're designing shaped like, Hoss?
Fine.You want me out of the house, I'll get out of the house.Can't wait to see what the universe has lined up for me out there.
Kids, I've been telling you the story of how I met your mother.And while there's many things to learn from this story, this may be the biggest.The great moments of your life won't necessarily be the things you do.They'll also be the things that happen to you.I'm not saying you can't take action to affect the outcome of your life.You have to take action, and you will.But never forget that, on any day, you could step out the front door and your whole life can change forever.You see, the universe has a plan, kids, and that plan is always in motion.A butterfly flaps its wings and it starts to rain.It's a scary thought.But it's also kind of wonderful.All these little parts of the machine constantly working, making sure that you end up exactly where you're supposed to be, exactly when you're supposed to be there.The right place at the right time.
Kids, it's a miracle that I ended up on that street corner.Especially when you consider how easy it would have been not to end up there.I mean, when I first stepped out of the apartment, I almost went right instead of left.Why didn't I go right? To answer that, we have to go back a few days.As you know, back then, your Aunt Robin hosted a morning show.
Now Eunice here makes all of these purses herself.They're hand embroidered with the world's finest silk.And each one takes months to make.I cannot emphasize how much work goes into Go to weather, you idiot.
Hey, everybody.We got a high pressure system coming in from the west and
On the plus side, I bought the cutest purse today.
So, wait, why did you throw up?
You don't want to know.
Come on.Tell me.
I will raise this child with you.You are not alone in this.We can even get married if you want, but I still want to see other girls, it would've to be one of those kind
God, stop it.I'm not pregnant.It's food poisoning.I ate something from this place, and three hours later, I was spewing like an open hydrant.
Well, that's a gross question.
No, where was the food from?
I don't want to tell you.
Go to YouTube.Put in "Robin Scherbatsky morning show vomit" Robin, home so soon.
Someone already put it on YouTube?
So Why you been throwing up? You pregnant?
Yeah, Barney.I'm pregnant.
So, wait, why won't you tell me where you got food poisoning?
You love this place.
If I tell you, it'll just ruin it.
That makes sense.
Don't tell me.
Is it that Indian place where the cat jumps on all the tables?
I'm not saying.
That Spanish place with baby's crib?
I'm not saying.
God, no.Is it this place? Tell me, damn you!
You really want to know?
It's Schlegel's Bagels.
Why did you tell me that? Schlegel's? Thanks a lot, Robin.Now I'm gonna have to try to find another place in NY that serves bagels.
So, you see, kids, if I had gone to Schlegel's Bagels as usual, I would have taken a right.I would have gotten a bagel gone home, worked on the old hat building, and you kids might never have been born.But I turned left instead, to go to my second-favorite bagel place and the rest is history.Of course, I stopped at that magazine stand on the way.Why did I stop there? Here's why.
Bro's Life magazine.Page 83.Check it.
"What your paintball gun says about your personality"?
"That last five pounds: How to get her to lose them."
Petra Petrova.Bro's Life magazine's girl of the year for may.A delicate flower in stiletto pumps and leopard panties, straddling an ATV.
These magazines are so lame.I mean, she's probably airbrushed and enhanced.
I have a date with her.
You are my hero! Are you serious? How do you have a date with her?
Not part of the story.Ted, I have been waiting a long time to say this.This girl is the one.
Of course she's the one.You have to marry those.Her.
Marry? I have something much, much more special in mind.Petra here, if all goes well, will be my wait for it, two hundredth.Sorry, I couldn't wait.It's all exciting.
Your two hundredth, as in "sex with"?
As in "sex with." I request the highest of fives.
Not if I was wearing a HazMat suit.Two hundreds is too many.
Right, 'cause there can be too many of something wonderful."Babe Ruth, easy, big fella.Let's not hit too many homers." "Steve Guttenberg, maybe just make three Police Academy movies."America's laughed enough."
Who are these girls? That was rhetorical.Don't show me the list.
A hundred and ninety-nine satisfied customers. Anyway, the big night is Thursday.I'm having a celebratory soiree beforehand at MacLaren's.Prepare a toast.Black tie optional, but preferred.Gifts are, look, I would say unnecessary, but follow your heart.
Barney, two hundred is too many.
It's not too many.
It's too many!
