In the Dark 18  

Fruit Salad
Author: ladysophiekitty 
Fandom: Bones
Characters/Pairing: Booth, Brennan Booth/Brennan.
Table: In the Dark
Prompt: #12, Electricity
Rating: PG
Warnings: slight spoilers for season 4
Word Count: 300
Summary: This is for dontgetanyolder who gave me the prompt Brennan catches Booth singing. After the last ficlet for this series, here's something light! Thanks to vamp926  and christinaof94  for the help
Notes: The song is Fruit Salad by the Wiggles.


"Booth? Why are you singing a song about fruit salad?" Brennan asked.

"What?! I'm not singing. I'm doing paperwork. Quietly," Booth replied, putting emphasis on the last word. They went back to work and a few minutes later Brennan said, "You're doing it again! Something about eating up bananas and apples and fruit salad being yummy yummy. Is this another one of your side affects from the brain tumor, Booth? Should I tell Dr. Sweets about it?"

"Woah, no telling Sweets anything, Bones. I'm fine. I just had Parker over for the weekend. We were channel surfing and we came across a Wiggles song." After seeing her confused look he elaborated, "These group of guys who dress up and sing songs. Kids love 'em. Worse part is, they get stuck in your head. That and I had to make fruit salad for Parker this weekend."

"I thought you like fruit," Brennan stated.

"I like fruit in pies, Bones. There's a difference," Booth said, "At least I wasn't in a meeting this time. Nothing like being stuck in an important FBI meeting with little kid songs stuck in your head." 

They both grinned at each other and then returned to work. When later on Booth started humming again, Brennan grinned again but didn't say anything.

Oh the joys of fatherhood.

LOL FRUIT SALAD. Seriously, that's like, the only song I know by The Wiggles.

Awesome job. :)

Too cute. I missed out on The Wiggles. Maybe thankfully?

VERY thankfully. I saw a few vids for this ficlet and that was enough for me. Annoying songs that are far too catchy!

My sometimes erratic knowledge of pop culture had me singing, "wiggins/wiggles, wiggins/wiggles". Then I realized "wiggins" came from Buffy, and wiggles are new to me.

Thanks for the review!

I knew of the Wiggles (when I visited my grandmother last summer she talked about having to watch it with my younger cousin) but I didn't know about it until later. I asked a friend what song I should have Booth sing and she said Fruit Salad by the Wiggles, so I youtubed it.

Oh it's true though, the damn Wiggles are so catchy! One of Australia's finest exports ;D

I was going to have a fangirl moment and yell "Merlin headerrrrr!!!" but then I wasn't sure LOL.

I only started during S2 myself. But I've picked up some S1 during the Syfy marathons.

It was a sort of segue, I already have a Giles obsession...

And the crossover bunnies are bugging me to no end LOL

*passes LOL link just for the heck of it

Thank you! It's so true though. Anytime there's a Booth/Parker moment on the show, my heart melts. Shame they don't have more of those!

100% agree with your statement, the writers need to add some more Parker and Booth interactions! It's just too adorable to pass up!
