"Yeah, like I really want to tell my boss that he is an insensitive asshole" I sure hoped Morine caught the sarcasm in my voice, cause it was dripping. "Kate, darlin, you call me up every Saturday for our usual banter about life, love and work. And every time you call you are always complainin about that darn boss of yours, or about that chatty one, Tani, something or other" she ask in her hick voice. Morine was my best friend from home, she was married now and had kids but, she and I were best friends in high school. "No, its Tony, yeah he is alright, but can get a bit annoying, he acts like my brothers always do when they have a totally hot date." I sigh saying, "Its just, I loved my job working for the president, and it is taking a bit of time to adjust, I am not used to so much change at one time………besides I totally do not always talk about Gibbs….err………my boss that often……………..do I," Morine laughs saying, "of course you don't, you only mention him when your in a really mad mood, or if your talking to me on a Saturday when my so called husband is watching the baseball game instead of coming to bed," I laugh at this statement, even though Morine loved her husband, she never could pass up ribbing on him when he wasn't around, "Oh gotta go the grisly bear is coming to bed, hope everything settles down for you hon, love yea, bye" she hangs up just as I am saying good by.

Moving off the couch where I sat so comfortable I go into the kitchen to get some more tee. Sighing I think, maybe I should get a dog, or a cat. They say they are mans best friend, maybe I wouldn't feel so lonely.

Walking into the bull pen on Monday morning, I yawn, I shouldn't have stayed up so late talking to Morine. I was so tired I felt dead on my feet; I snapped my mouth shut, because I notice Tony eyeing me. "Stay up late last night Kate," he says, grinning like a char shire cat. You know the one thing I didn't miss this weekend was Tony's annoying bantering. Smiling as brightly as I could at 8:30am in the morning I say, "No, Tony I was sitting at home all alone, just waiting for you to call," this was meant as a sarcastic remark, and just as Tony was preparing for what I hoped was a lame reply, in walks Gibbs with his dreaded coffee. "Mornin boss, sleep ok last night" Tony says, always quick with a statement. "Tony, didn't I tell you to do that paperwork last Friday." Gibbs gives Tony one of his death glares, yikes I am sure glad I got mine done yesterday. Tony begins doing what looks like paperwork. Gibbs walks by me and just gives me a nod. Man I have got to get a life.
