Was half joking, then it happened

Almost everyday this week, I've come across heart shaped things in the most unusual circumstances. The watermelon, the fireplace, and even the street. As I sat down for a quick snack of some chips, I half jokingly said to myself, wouldn't that be funny if here was a heart shaped chip in here. No sooner did I say that...a heart shaped chip appeared! At least it looks like a heart to me.
