I love Transformers. I have a shrine to Optimus Prime, in a glass display case, in the focal point of my living room.

Still, it was hard not to be embarrassed when standing in line at Walmart behind a woman buying tampons, toothpaste, various household cleaners, discount cheese, etc. She looked at the things I placed onto the belt: a Transformers play set (complete with action diorama!), a 2008 Transformers calendar, a copy of the new movie, two sticker sets and said “Oh, someone sure likes Transformers! Are these for your little fan at home?”. My reply of “actually, they’re all for me” earned an absolutely horrified look, and a very fast about-face to get away from the weirdo, or something.

I only wish that someone had sent me a text message at that exact moment – my ring tone is the Transformers theme song from the 1986 movie.

On second thought, I’m not embarrassed at all – SHE was the one buying tampons and discount cheese; I’m just plain awesome.
