Two British idioms in a row to learn!

Gail-You have a wicked sense of humor! My house was hit by lightning and I am reading this in a hotel room. You are really cheering me up!

Every single one of these made me laugh. Ziva and her idioms are hilarious.

At the end of this one, I started laughing so hard I started to cry!

Review for all the chapters - these are priceless. You're Ziva is very good - as are the other character portrayals.
Good job! :)

Yes somehow I did miss these! Thanks for telling me! Ziva, Ziva, I'm surprised she didn't look at his crotch and say nothing...that would make him obsess for days...
This I always say is the one disadvantage to being a female in emergency services; such as firefighting or the military...it's a bit easier for men to 'water the flowers'...

That would probably be a good one to explain to her before shouting it! Thankfully no one was coincidently reaching for something or it could have gotten ugly!

Poor Ziva she does try so hard. One of the newest ones I heard on a fairly recently episode..."McGee tells her that he has 'hung a net' to catch the bad guy at the train stations, bus stops, etc. She replies, "I don't know who Annette is and why you are so proud of killing her..."
Nice work yet again!

"Well, guys I think that's me done for the evening." Tony sighs as he sits down in the booth, picks up his drink and finishes it in one long swig. "Ah, poor baby wouldn't she give you her number?" queries Abby as she leans over and affectionately tousles his hair. "Or is that she already has his number?" McGee chimes in grinning. DiNozzo glares at him. "She's married McMatchmaker and you know how I feel about that. She obviously wasn't smiling at me like you said she was." His colleagues laugh good naturedly and he can't help but join in." - LOVED Abby and Tim teasing DiNozzo. They should definitely IMO team up against him on the RL show more often, AND in fics.
"I can't believe we had to send Palmer home in a cab again. Anyway it's a school night so I think we should all head home. You know how the Boss gets when we show up hungover." "That's just because we didn't invite him." The others just gape at Abby in disbelief for a moment" - I am astonished too. She means he would actually say yes and show up?
Ziva's reaction to Abby's calling "shotgun!" was priceless.

I'm not sure if you should mark a fic as complete if you're planning to update it occasionally. It confused me. :/
But I'm glad to be helpful & the chapter was as good as ever! Poor Ziva; there are oh so many idioms in our language that make no sense if thought about...
| StarkContrastStartles chapter 7 . 4/7/2011
I do love it - very much
| Pink Wolf Princess chapter 33 . 4/4/2011
Aw... this was the perfect way to end the fic! :D

"I was telling them the day Bubba bought the farm had to be on my list. He was one of my best friends growing up." "What is sad about buying a farm? I would think it a nice dream to realise. All that space. I would like it." "To raise animals?" "No, Tony. To shoot things." She grins at him and unsure if she's being sarcastic he wisely decides not to pursue it. "So what is sad about it?" The other three chuckle. "What!" Ziva glares. "Ah. To buy the farm is another way of saying to die." "Thanks Abby and I am sorry about Bubba." "Thank you Officer David." - when you wrote this, did you also get the idea Abby was not totally accepting of Ziva's apology? Or did she use the more formal form of address to stop herself from laughing at Ziva?
"As she goes to take another slice of pizza Ziva thinks to herself that whilst she was making some progress on learning to be an investigator and with the American vernacular she obviously still had a long way to go in learning to understand her colleagues and one Goth forensic scientist in particular. She would have to continue to take it one skip at a time." - One skip, hehehe.

"A Ford half-ton pickup with four on the floor and Bubba riding shotgun" I lovelovelove the way she says that in the episode...but no one's mentioned Bubba since! Thanx 4 bringing him up:)

Poor McGee... English is so complicated...
