Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 226. Prompt from numb3rs100. Challenge #328-Deaf. Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome. PLEASE NOTE: Apparently there is a rather massive canon error involved. MY BAD!
Summary: Don has a very specific talent.
Don can’t play an instrument. He’d be hard pressed to tell Mozart from Beethoven without a program, and left to his own devices, he probably wouldn’t listen to either. Most of Dad’s precious jazz records sound alike to him. When it comes to music, he’s functionally tone-deaf.
Give him an hour alone with a suspect and he’s the ultimate connoisseur. A single discrepancy in a well-rehearsed story sounds as wrong as a flat note in the middle of a symphony.
Charlie may be the master when it comes to math; but in the interrogation room, Don is the true virtuoso.
