"Adam?"

"Don! How are you?"

"A bit perplexed, actually. It's been a bear of a week, what with that 'mini-Gathering' in New York. And now the head of my Middle Eastern group is excited about some new evidence that the Pheonicians sailed to Florida."

"Really?"

"Apparently so, based on your latest translation for them."

"Ah..."

"Adam, I realize that translating between languages with such diverse frames of reference is a creative endeavor. But let's do try to keep it in the realm of non-fiction, shall we?"

"I'll re-check my notes and get back to them tomorrow morning, Don."

"Bright boy."

The drabble makes me think about mortals being fooled by the records, and of Methos sneaking around archaeological sites, shifting things from side to side, planting evidence and removing other...

He has a nearly endless capacity for amusing himself. I can see him spending huge amounts of time in setting up an archaeological hoax.

Funny part is, I think he was delighted to get caught this time. Makes it more of a game when someone's paying attention.

i love this idea. Methos screwing with the archaeological record just... because. He can.

Oh, this is purely keeping Adam Pierson in line, which is a job unto itself.

Thanks for the feedback, Pat!
