What a fun story! Loved it! Oh those typos - they can get us in soooo much trouble sometimes!

Thank you for sharing this funny story with us. A team under pressure at cracking point and a funny typo- it has to make them crack up. My favorite line- People only hurt the ones they love... The price Steve pays for being Mike's buddy boy can be high at times

I really enjoyed this humorous one shot. Poor Steve getting the blame but Mike really knowing who did it and Norm not realizing that he would pay for his teasing of Mike's buddy boy..Ha! Excellent idea about the roster/rooster typo. Great story. Thanks for sharing it. :-)

Nice bit of humour to relieve the stress in the bullpen and, of course, Norm had to be the "joker in the pack! Two weeks of night duty really will muck up his love life. It never does to cross Mike.

Love it, when you're really stressed there's nothing like a bit of levity!

Oh, Daddy dear. Never go through your daughter's drawers! No matter how good your intention it's an absolute NO-NO! And to read her cards tied up in red-ribbon! I was so surprised at Mike invading her privacy like this. But I felt it was a bit like when Steve was surreptitiously investigating Officer Wazinski in Solitaire and Mike bawled him out in his office for invading the man's privacy then, with a smirk on his face, he said "Ok what gives. Tell me what you found out about him". I felt just the same - horrified that Mike had invaded her privacy but then I was like a voyeur desperate to know what was in the cards. Steve's discomfort was palpable. Glad Mike was only teasing him.

Thank you for sharing.

You started this piece with Mike in full defence of Steve, his driving abilities and his ability to act instinctively the moment a situation arises. Sometimes too rashly but, hell, he gets the job done. Mike would even trust him with Jeannie but only to drive her. I loved that you flip the story to talk about possible promotions if Mike were to retire or some other scenario. Who would eventually succeed him? I love it that Norm is not suitable because he has too many irons in too many other fires, and solid Dan has no great leadership qualities. This leaves Lessing who's already been shoveled off sideways, and Tanner and Steve. Tanner deserves his promotion. Steve is worthy of promotion with eventual leadership potential but he's just too damn young and inexperienced. Mike's fear of losing his partner and protégé to another department was almost tangible. But the bosses know gold when they see it and they know Steve still needs further nurturing from Mike. A promotion now will give him the incentive he needs to keep plugging away onwards and upwards.
I got so wrapped up in this story I almost felt like a mother hen so proud of her young chick. You must do an awful lot of research to keep it all authentic. Most enjoyable. Well done.

What a lovely story, emotional and funny at the same time. The description of the "Time machine" drawer was great. Loved the way Mike nosed through the greeting cards from Steve and the excuse he finds for doing so.

This was a chuckle a minute. What a clever perspective to write it from. You ladies at the SOSF group want to watch your backs. He may get his own back one day.

Jeannie's off limits but Steve loves her. The only way he can demonstrate his love is by protecting the man she adores most in all the world. Her Dad. That's as far as Steve can go for the moment -but it won't always be like that...
| Sylvia Elaine chapter 9 . 3/12/2015
Oh, Steve has waited so long for Jeannie and now it looks like he has to wait at least another year. Shame! I loved the humour at the start of this piece between Mike and Steve and especially an example of female prowess being Norm in drag! Quite a touching ending too.

Those two reminded me of me and my brother when we were kids. He could be so annoying too, then the moment I retaliated that was when Mom or Dad would walk into the room and, immediately, I was the protagonist and he was the innocent party. The times I copped out and it was all his fault. So I sympathise with Jeannie in this story. The only difference is my brother never bought me apology presents.
