This has a nice old-timey flavor to it. I was thinking Hamlet, pondering things in the same sort of way. Timely since the new movie is out which questions just who did the works of Shakespeare. To me that's like saying that Pluto isn't a planet any more but I digress.
This allusive thread - could be an elusive one instead, but I appreciate the potential for feigned mental ambiguity, at least I seem to use it a lot.
