Day Sixteen of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
What do you know -- something angst-free, at last! Swear, I must be on the manic-depressive roller-coaster these days ... Enjoy this contribution to day 16 of 41 Days of Metallicar, though!

Protection Ritual
“You’ve gotta be kidding!”
“This is the lore. ‘Let everywhere be the chiming of sweet bells, that the spirit’s curses reach not the ears of the heart. Let mirrors reflect away its ugliness and brightness outshine its evil.’”
Sam battled manfully to keep a straight face as he watched his brother festooning the Impala with strings of “blessed” silver bells from the belly-dancing outfit he’d found, adding to the gaudy effect of mirrored Mardi Gras beads. The car looked like some Creole or Mexican float.
Distracted, he missed Dean’s grab at the paper in his hand.
“Let me – Wikipedia?!”

That has got to make the list of Top 5 best pranks ever! I can't believe Dean fell for that, but of course, he would.

Given the silliness of some of the "lore" out there, why not? *grin*

Well, if the ritual could keep his baby safe I'm sure Dean would try it - at least once...

I so don't want to be Sam after that - the revenge is going to be terrible, I'm sure ;)

Care to bet he'd argue that the car probably liked being dolled up as Dean's girl??? *grin*

The Mardi Gras beads might come in handy.
Just saying...

**blushingly confesses here to OCR when she inevitably wanders this way that I had to salt & burn my own green mirrored ones; NOT going to corrupt a 6-year-old, thank you very kindly**

Long story, but ... I have a stuffed rat at work who's perched on the top of the back wall of my cube. (He's a tribute to overworked lab rats everywhere ...) Anyway, after a few people freaked out thinking he was real (!), I dolled him up with my Mardi Gras beads, and the guy I mentored brought back from a vacation a wee little Mexican sombrero that fits him (the rat, not Toni!) perfectly, so I now have a very festive brown rat on my cube.

And that was apropos of absolutely nothing!

What's his name? The rat? ;)

Frank - he's named for his previous owner. I inherited him when Frank retired!

Sweet. Frank's a good name for a rat...

I dunno - he's got longer legs than Dean. Maybe he can run faster? *grin*

I'm pretty sure Dean has enough motivation to run faster and catch up to Sam...really pretty sure!
