My poor SRX! Now it’s in the shop for who knows how long which means we’ll have to ride in Deeks’ Malibu. That’s just great. There’s no way he’s ever going to let me drive the thing. Not that I really want to, it’s just that I feel more in control if I’m doing the driving. Maybe I can talk Hetty into letting me use the SUV until I get mine back. Chasing terrorists is tough on our vehicles.
I opened my big mouth today and told Deeks, I would try skateboarding. I hope I didn’t make a mistake. My comment about it not being hard because he could do it was just to irritate him. I know there’s more to it than just rolling around and it takes a long time to be really good at it but I can’t back down now. My competitiveness won’t allow me to let it go.
Maybe that’s why he keeps challenging me to do these things. He baited me into a trip to Vegas and has challenged me multiple times to shooting contests and sparring matches. He goaded me into learning how to surf and now it’s skateboarding! I’m doing exactly what he wants me to do! How did I not see this before? I’ve got to figure out a way to get around his challenges without giving in. Or maybe… I should just let it happen. It’s not like I don’t enjoy the time spent on these things, or with him. Although, I’d like to see how he handles it when I don’t fall for his next scheme. This could be really, really interesting….
Note to self… don’t be so predictable!
