This kid (or troll, as the case may be) has a hell of a future as a writer. I envy his ability to spin an engaging yarn using only the barest threads of information. It’s a skill that will come in handy, seeing that real life tends to supply us with vague non-answers to our most important questions. It takes a master storyteller to reinterpret those vagaries as mysteries to be relished rather than dead-ends to be scorned. This beanie-wearing troll seems to be following in the footsteps of writers like Mark Twain, and not only because they share a preoccupation with the Mississippi River.
