"Sammy! Stop!"

Nine-year-old Dean Winchester was wrestling with his little brother to get him to lie still and keep the thermometer in his mouth. Sammy was restless, cranky, and feverish … and uncooperative. Some day someone was going to invent thermometers that could read temperature in a split-second, but he knew it wasn't going to be in time to help him.

"No!" Sammy struggled.

"Yes!" Dean grabbed Sammy, straddled him, got flailing arms under his knees, held Sammy's head with his left hand, pushed the thermometer into the open-for-screaming mouth and gently held it closed.


"Back atcha, Little Brother."
