Am I the only one who loves the Barrel story?

It's kinda sweet.
It reminds me of magic realism, since it presents as normal concepts such as being in the middle of the ocean in a barrel, being rescued by a flying ferret, etc.
What can I say... I find its simplicity worthy of praise. I would write more in this first post but I really want to know what you guys think about it (in case you do not know where it is, check the comics 1, 11, 20, 22, 25, 31, 39, etc.).

Links for ease: one, eleven, twenty, twenty-two, twenty-five, thirty-one, and thirty-nine.

Shrugs. Views it as idle doodles. Notes a distinct Little Prince influence (further evidenced by other comics). Reflected Randall's thoughts at that moment. Wandered as much as the prince.
Changes its form depending on the observer.

A nice story lost to time.
