Why Frosty?

The only possible summer that the two stories align is the summer of 1949 when Forrest would have been 18. Frosty would not have managed the Totem in June 1942 and then gone to Iceland for three years and then come back mess around for three or four years and then manage the Totem again. I mean, c'mon, Beavertooth, you easily debunked my connection with Pandora's Box as not a religious nod, give me something here. Are we researching stuff or not? What does the word several mean?!

Definition of several (Entry 1 of 2)
1a : separate or distinct from one another
federal union of the several states
b(1) : individually owned or controlled : EXCLUSIVE
a several fishery
— compare COMMON
(2) : of or relating separately to each individual involved
a several judgment
c : being separate and distinctive : RESPECTIVE
specialists in their several fields

On Meriam-Webster you have to look at entry two for the definition that Forrest highlighted.

Wow! I guess we both leap to conclusions. I assumed that someone who worked as a cook in Butte, Montana in 1939/1940 could easily have been running the Totem Cafe (or at least the kitchen and dishwashers) in June/July 1942, which you assume didn't happen.

Or why couldn't he have returned there after the war in 1945 and been the boss when Forrest was 15, 16, or 17? Just because the author of the article does not know where he was in those years prior to 1949 doesn't mean he was somewhere else, which you assume. It was very common for returning soldiers to take back their old jobs when they returned home from the war (often "bumping" women out of the jobs). Yes, Forrest would not have been 12 at the time, but we already know that a multi-year shift in ages is common in Forrest's writings (Eric Sloane, for example), and is what I consider a hint in the book.

So I guess our assumptions have made an ass of you and me both -- which probably would bring a smile to Forrest's face. Smile

As to the definition of "several", I think you are on to something there. I have previously posted that I think Forrest uses secondary definitions for words.
