x-x-x-x-x


"What's that?"

"What does it look like, Michael? It's a hot dog!"

"I know that, I mean what's wrong with it?"

"What? Nothing—it's perfect! It's got cheese and sauerkraut and ketchup and relish and mustard—the works!"

"You know what it looks like, don't you?"

"A hot dog."

"Oh, come on, Lincoln. You've been drunk enough times, you've got to have seen piles of—"

"All right, Michael, I get the point already. Clearly you don't want it."

"You're right. Could you… just eat it over there, okay?"

"Sure. Mmmph. So, what happened while I was gone?"

"Cubs dropped two flies and gave up a steal. They're tanking."

"Yeah, what else is new? I'm sorry, though, Michael. I mean, it is your birthday. I hoped they'd do better."

"That's okay—the Cubs losing is kind of part of the birthday tradition."

"Hah! You said it, not me. So, you want a bite?"

"I really don't. But thanks."

"Any time, Michael. How about some soda?"

"Sure, I'll have a sip of—hey, root beer! You remembered!"

"Of course. And I'll even take you out for ice cream after, if you want. Or sooner, if the game turns really hopeless."

"You're on. And thanks."

"You bet. Happy Birthday, Michael. You're old enough to vote… and not much else."

"That's okay. Just glad to be here. With the Cubs losing and all."

"Hey, at least some things never change."

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

This is just so nice! I love the thought of Lincoln trying to think of something great for Michael's birthday, and all those little things going not-quite-right but the important thing - celebrating the milestone together - being perfect.

Thank you so much!

It's such a guy thing, and maybe even more a Lincoln thing, to have that "Everybody loves what I love!" mentality, and then gift someone with a truly horrific offering like that hot dog. Suburban-Dad Lincoln would be the kind of guy who gives his wife a tool kit for her birthday. ;)

but the important thing - celebrating the milestone together - being perfect.
That's the part I've always liked about the brothers-- everything on the surface seems mismatched and wrong, but the parts deep down that actually matter still work. Family is more important than that you have fun every single minute you're a family. Or even a lot of minutes, given the Burrows/Scofield history.

So glad you liked it, and I hope it maked your day just a little bit better-- late though it was!

LOL, yes!

Now, I have a little something for you and you can find it here at my LJ. If I watched more SPN, I would have written *those* brothers for you, but I decided to go with what I know. Oh, and it was inspired by the icon you've used above, the one that always reminds me of you. :)
