I’m at Safeway self-checking out. This big dude in his forties or fifties ambles over to me. He works at Safeway. Gives my N7 bag a look. I’m thinking he’s about to accuse me of stealing groceries or something.
He growls, “So…you ever been on the Normandy?”
My eyes light up. His does too. Then we start chatting about Mass Effect and Skyrim.
