Did you know that Cupid was truly clumsy?
Cupid, otherwise known as the god of love, was the son of Venus (the goddess of love) and the god Mars.
When a beautiful princess named Psyche caused Venus’s worshipers to lose sight of their respect for her, Venus became angry and envious that Psyche was taking away from her fame. So, in vengeance, she sent Cupid to curse Psyche so that she would fall in love with an unpleasant creature.
However, as Cupid made his way to shoot Psyche with his golden arrow as she was sleeping, she awoke and startled him. Because of her reaction, Cupid panicked and wound up scratching himself with his own arrow which caused him to fall in love with Psyche.
Love sure does happen in strange ways, doesn’t it? Clumsy Cupid!
