Where do you see humor in this text, and what is the effect of such humor on your reading of the story? -Is Dr. Heidegger a likeable character? A sinister one? As a reader, do you relate more to him or to his guests? -You've heard us argue both sides, but what's your final answer – is the water in the vase really from the Fountain of Youth, or does Dr. Heidegger just get his guests drunk?
