I fell into my pockets and had no mittens

I really love the story this guy tells at the end. In all his creepiness, he seems pretty proud of his talent, and how he built his skill while working on the farm. For today’s writing exercise:

Write about a character with an unusual talent (or “novelty” as our friend Cecil Dill puts it). Think about how they discovered this talent, whether anyone encouraged them, or if they have any other more “normal” talents.  Explore how the perspective of the rest of the world compares to the way your character sees her talent.
