Title: Six Uses For a Stopwatch That Have Nothing To Do With Sex (And One That Does)
Author: Shaggy shaggydogstail
Summary: There's a lot you can do with a stopwatch.
Characters/Pairing: Mostly gen, with a bit of Jack/Ianto
Shaggy writes humour very well, and this one's no exception. Some of the ficlets are hysterical, and the Jack/Ianto part is endearingly cute.
'Have you tried drinking a glass of water backwards?'
'Backwards, hic, forwards, and sideways.' Jack grimaced. 'Hic. If I drink any more, hic, water I'll make sloshing noises when I, hic, walk.'
'My auntie always said a surprise was the best cure for the hiccoughs,' offered Gwen from the other side of the desk.
'No disrepect to your auntie, hic, but if people could stop giving me advice about how to cure the, hic, hiccoughs that would be a pleasant surprise,' said Jack. 'Who, hic, knows, it might even work.'
