It's a time-travel story. It takes the inventor several attempts (and a bartender) to get the future he wants to come out right.

It's narrated by the bartender. The characters (including the narrator) seem sketchy, and the plot isn't all that original--it's nothing exciting, nothing painful. An okay story.
