The joke's on the Ha-Ra haters

Just then my friend arrived and ordered a martini. I must say that he got not only the best martini he has ever had, but also the best martini he has ever had for $3.50. Carl even put the shaker on the bar, which held an entire second drink. "You are fantastic," I told him. "I don't see why people have said that you need to be feared."

"The only people who need to worry are folks from the Marina or SOMA," he said. Rad. He went over to the cash register and rustled around with some papers. He pulled out the original dive bar guide I had used for my info on him, opened it to the Ha-Ra page, and showed me all the people who had signed it. It was his yearbook, of sorts, and he was proud to be mentioned.

"This calls for my special two," my friend said, and took out a two-dollar bill he had been saving for just such a memorable occasion. He added it to our tip pile. When Carl saw it, his eyes lit up. He held it up to the light, beaming. "The signing of the Declaration of Independence is depicted!" I exclaimed, as if this were Antiques Roadshow.

"Nice," said Carl. Nice, indeed.
