Allison and Eva and I went to Walmart to pick up some batteries for the new salt and pepper shakers. While I was there I found a special two pack of Transformers figures for $20. This included Perceptor and Wheeljack. I already had the wheeljack but wasn’t sure so I grabbed it anyway.

Upon leaving I was looking through the batteries and a guy came up to me and asked to see my shirt better. He got excited and stated, “Ultra Magnus!” While, technically, this could have been Ultra Magnus it was a humorous Tshirt depicting Optimus Prime as “Amazon Prime”. We started talking and come to find out he was a huge Transformers fan, too. He was also a collector of Transformers and we showed each other photos of our collections. It was a totally strange, yet cool, exchange.
