Exposition: submitted two questions to Doctor Hal.
Rising action: was rewarded with two shots of Fernet
Climax: two shots of fernet plus three beers equals ouch ouch my head oh lord this was a bad idea.
Denouement: I was not quite drunk enough to get into Chicken John’s bus to drive to Santa Rosa to return the driver’s license he’d found in the Haight last week.
Moral: Ask Doctor Hal is every Wednesday at 12 Galaxies. You should come next time.
