MONDAY, 21 DECEMBER 2015
John Doggett opened the door to his office and let his little friend, Alex Krycek, inside. It was
heartbreaking that the boy's marriage to Marita was ending in divorce, but well… poop
happened in life, and this was one of life's poop moments. As it turned out, Krycek was flat ass
broke and so, Doggett, being the good man that he is, was offering to be his lawyer, pro bono.
"Gee thanks Doggett for letting me come here," Krycek said as he sat down in the chair
opposite Doggett's desk.
Doggett smiled at the other as he leaned over his desk. "No worries, Krycek. You're a good
friend and we want to help you out. So…" He smiled, so innocently that he had no idea what
was coming his way next. "I'll do your case pro bono."
Krycek sniggered and snickered and chuckled.
Oh god, what now? Doggett raised a brow.
"Pro what?" Krycek was stifling his giggles.
"Pro bono." Doggett repeated. He didn't know what was so funny.
"Pro Boner," Krycek 'repeated'.
Doggett sighed. "No, pro bono," he stressed.
Krycek wiggled in his seat and chuckled again.
"You've got a pro boner for me," the little man sniggled with merriment and looked around, as if
someone else were in the room to giggle with him. "Doggett's a professional boner!" he
Doggett sighed and rubbed his forehead and pinched the bridge of his nose. Why? Why was
this happening to him?
"No, it's called pro bono. It means--"
"--It means you got a pro BONER FOR ME!" Oh how he was tickled with glee. He sat opposite of
Doggett and stomped his little feet in a joyous fit of teehee.
Doggett let the pervy little man have his moment of glee as he sighed heavily.
"Pro bono," Doggett began to explain, calmly, "Denotes work undertaken without charge,
especially, as with your case, when legal work is done for a client with a low, or no, income."
Krycek wasn't listening, he was too busy rejoicing his har-de-har.
"Pro boner!" he cried in joyous sing-song.
Krycek shook his little head. "Boner!" he pointed and laughed again.
"Nuh-uh, BONER!" More giggles.
"Bono," Doggett was firm.
Krycek gave a sly smile. "Bono," he switched it up. They always fell for it when the 'yes, no fight'
"Boner!" Doggett screamed. "It's called PRO BONER!"
Crap! Dammit! The little man got him and Krycek threw his head back and let out a hearty
"You said it! You got a pro boner for me!!"
Off his giggles…
