Quandary Resolution 1116
Old Man of the Sea, jerkwater, tousle, agrestic
It's hard for Safiq to imagine that this man, Safiq's Old Man of the Sea, was the smiling stranger that made his parents happy when he took Safiq, tousling his hair and tickling him, away from them with the promise of a better life for their child, away from the jerkwater that they lived in, and from their agrestic life that was betrayed by the rains year after year.
