A sweet, gentle story. I listened to the podcast first, and it wasn’t till I looked at the text version that I realized Tommie doesn’t get pronouns. Just “Tommie,” and sometimes some subtle circumlocutions. Pretty impressive, although my mind being what it is, I automatically filled in he/him/his where it didn’t exist.
