Comicpalooza, bread pudding, and a warm heart in Houston

I am, sometimes, the queen of random trips. Actually, I used to be pre-pandemic. I would just go to wherever I found an available or free flight and hotel. During the pandemic my travel slowed down tremendously. I did randomly go to Cape Cod at the height of the pandemic, as well as Virginia Beach. Now that was really random. I miss travel. I miss my travel rituals such as eating every bread pudding I can find on a menu.

Well, I’m hoping to do more travel. Although, I must admit the flying part is still stressful. Perhaps even moreso, considering all the flight delays including my flight to Houston. My trip to Texas was not super random. There was actually a purpose that I cannot disclose. But the trip was planned out of kindness and warm heartedness. With that in mind, we enjoyed our add ons.

We got to go to Comicpalooza and I had a chance to meet the vetsatile actor Lance Reddick. Even if you don’t know his name, chances are you’ve seen something with him it, i.e. Lost, Fringe, John Wick. I love actors who can be in so many good shows and movies and seem down-to-earth.

I also got the chance to have a most wonderful bread pudding that put an extra kick into my step. For a bit, it seemed all the worries brought on by the pandemic had dissipated. I was treated to this delicious delight by an old acquaintance I hadn’t seen in years. We were both frozen and non-frozen in time.

I am more convinced now that I must travel further, if anything to be reminded of how good bread pudding can be.
