Sometimes life gives you lemons, and sometimes it throws a graduation cap in your face on graduation day.

Meagan Richards, who just graduated from UT this weekend with a degree in African and African Diaspora Studies, was at the school’s annual graduation fireworks ceremony when irony struck her right on the head.

As students stood before the Tower and threw their graduation caps into the air, Richards was recording it all on her phone. Then, at the perfect moment, a cap came soaring straight toward her and hit her by surprise.

Unhurt and having found the incident “hilarious,” she posted the video to Twitter where it’s received more than 22,000 likes.

Congrats, grad!
