It all started with XHKDLW’w’s big mouth. We were on our way to DUYFSIY!Y (locally known as Earth), making an FTL segment swing near Aldebaran. I was drunk on FLEENURUR, so I could get some sleep.
I guess the swing was a bit close; XHKDLW’w’ yawned at the exact wrong pico-second, his YRHD-sac cracked open and every last one of his NIBSXT gushed out. They ate half my face before he could suck them up.
The scars are a reminder: conquering the universe is a bitch.
