A retired teacher is sitting at a table outside a bar; it’s a beautiful sunny day. The waiter brings him breakfast.
Soon after a young man arrives and the teacher invites him to sit, he was waiting for him. He is dark skinned.
He comes from Mali. Well dressed, serene, ready for the “game” that the teacher is playing. It’s a puzzle game where one wins when completing a crossword.
But there is a variable that makes this game impossible: guessing the solutions before the question is made. Nevertheless, the young man finishes the game.
