The clerk is astonished to see the man—a dwarf—in her shop. As he heads over to a cooler to grab some water, she leans over the counter to get a better look. “Yoohoo,” she calls. He turns toward her; she pulls out a camera and snaps a picture. Annoyed, Fin nods and continues to shop, a nonchalant indication that the clerk’s reaction to her once-in-a-lifetime dwarf sighting is all-too-familiar to him. One could criticize this convenience store encounter as easy and...
