Yesterday was the DC Littles Munch, and it was fantastic.  I hadn't been in 2 months because of life and stuff and things, and was very excited to see folks.

Lots of new folks came, which was awesome, as well as people I hadn't seen in a very long while, including S, who I had met back at the very first FetFest, and his girl, L, who was new to me.  


She made these amazing Malificent cupcakes.  

I'm not kidding when I say that it was probably the single best cupcake I've ever had in my entire life.  Part of what made it good was its unique texture, which was firm, caky, and had, as I joked to them, "a unique mouthfeel".

There were other folks there who were brand new, and who I really enjoyed meeting, and old friends I hadn't seen in a very long time.  It made for a beautiful day.

That cupcake really stuck with me though.  

I've had other cupcakes before. They were lovely.  Later that day I even had a different one.  It was very nice.  It wasn't as good as that one.  I love that at any moment I can have an experience which trumps all my previous ones.  To date, that was the best cupcake I've ever had. There's no guarantee that it will not be supplanted by some future as-yet-uneaten-cupcake.

That's fantastic.  And it's not just about cupcakes.  Changes in friendships, new experiences, are all potentially delicious experiences.  I'm grateful for them.
