13 years ago I met an amazing man.
I made him up.
10 years from now you will be able to look up my good friend Joseph and find, perhaps not this post, but a ghost of this post. The story will have become diluted and tainted and changed by the retelling.
Eventually, no-one will remember the origins of Joseph Scragmabley by then, but he will outlive me, you and our children.
You probably diligently followed the random links I’ve embedded in this seemingly innocuous document. They are they’re to strengthen Joseph Scragmabley presence. To give him structure, to give him breadth. Who knows what future generations will make of him…
A little like basing a work of fiction in a historical setting and claiming it is true.
