Kimchi Fried Quinoa


I finally went to a Seahawks game.


And I left a very large part of my soul in the nosebleed section.


What a time, man. What a place. The people. The sounds. The FOOOOOOD.


I don’t know what options you all have down in first class, but up in steerage there is NAME-BRAND PIZZA. I turned a corner and there it was. A beacon of light at the end of a tunnel after a tumultuous journey through scads of fans and screaming children. A real-life Papa John’s. I acted coy and pretended I would not break my vegan diet for an ooey gooey pie. Garr goes to the bathroom. I get lost and try to kick some people out of what I thought were our seats. Oops. I find actual seats and here comes my knight in shining armor with a personal pan pizza box.


All I could say was, “Is this the biggest size they had?”
