The Harlequin appeared one normal day when I was but a wee lad in 7th grade Language Arts with the best teacher ever (and still a good friend of mine) Mr. Cory Campbell. No one knows why he is here or, more importantly, when he will leave. Opinions of him are varied, from those who call him by (what they assume are clever) vulgar alterations of his name and spit apon his every utterance, to those whos affectionate voices call him Harlie and whom hang weightless on his witty words. Some attempt to describe him: arrogant, egotistic, cocky, clever, impish, witty... But all of them agree on one thing: "There is no one quiet like The Harlequin."
