Drones?! Seriously? Yet another thing LAPD definitely didn’t prepare me for. It’s a good thing I’m a “go with the flow” kind of guy, because this job is certainly unpredictable. And not just the job, but my teammates. Who would have ever guessed Nell was all into models, aerial acrobatic, and that whole world. I mean, yeh it’s definitely a defining characteristic of living in Nerdville, but that’s too disparaging for my Velma. She’s even beyond “geek”. I don’t know why she seems ashamed and tries to hide that top secret IQ. (Hey, if it was me, you know I’d be showing it off!) The way she remained frighteningly calm and focused in directing Callen to handle the drone as it headed first for the plant and then him? Impressive doesn’t begin to describe her performance. Anyway, I’m beginning to think she’s destined to something even beyond Hetty 2.0. Can you even imagine such a thing? It’s scary – and yet oddly intriguing….
Speaking of unpredictable… oh my partner. I still remember – quite fondly – finally getting Kensi in the surf. I’ll admit to being surprised how easily she took to it; this is just one of the endless reasons she’s my Wonder Woman. But a skateboard? Why does the thought of that make me queasy? She’s never even been on roller skates – & that’s double the number of wheels! On the topic of wheels, we all know how she drives. Oh boy. Yet, all those martial arts certainly teach us balance, right? No. Nope, I just know her competitive nature is going to take over at the worst possible moment. I can already picture her trying to showboat with an epic carve and hit the deck. It’s one thing to bail or crash out of a wave, but doing the same off a ramp or a pipe isn’t nearly as forgiving as the water. I can’t bear the thought of her getting hurt (yet again). And if Hetty finds out….
Ok Deeks, time to get creative. Maybe an interestingly decorated helmet & pads? Yeh, in bright pink cause we all know that’s her favorite color! LOL! Nah, there aren’t enough donuts in the world to dig me out of that hole. Got it – decals of all her nicknames! I’m off in search of stickers depicting ferns, princesses, sunshine…. This is gonna be awesome!
