An awkward or unsuccessful first experience, followed
by better, highly successful subsequent experiences
of the same kind. Like when you make a batch of pancakes
: The first one turns out messed-up because you're out of practice or haven't made pancakes
before. The second and following pancakes
come out perfectly
round and golden.
Girl 1: "My new boyfriend
is so great, but when we had sex for the first
time, it was awkward and terrible. I hope
it gets better. I really like
him and he likes me."
Girl 2: "Be patient. It's just like
pancake. I'm sure it will get better."
