Title: Prairie dogs, Woodchucks, and Lemmings
Challenge Word: Alert
Disclaimer: I love that we get to play with them. Thanks for sharing.
A/N: Speaking of squirrels, my friend entered a chili cookoff. She used squirrel and moose meat and made 'Rocky and Bullwinkle Stew.' She didn't win.
Dean sits up on day 2. He finally looks more alert.
Focused eyes find Sam and Sam feels the first prickling of relief that the poison's run its course.
Dean confidently states: "It's the damn hamsters."
Sam sags. Then nudges his brother and watches him topple back into the pillows.
Day 3 and Dean's blaming porcupines.
Day 4 is rats.
Day 5 and Sam's now sure his brother has something personal against all rodents.
Day 6, Dean awakes slowly, face puckered. Sam looks at him and asks, "Squirrels?"
"What?" Dean scowls, grumpy and confused.
Sam sighs and grins. "Welcome back."
