I should have known that trying to meditate with Deeks was a bad idea. He just can’t sit quietly for any length of time. I actually timed him once. We were in the car on a stake out and I made a bet that he couldn’t be quiet for five minutes. He couldn’t.
We’ve spend the last two weeks worrying about Callen and just found out that he’s going to be fine. Thank God the pharmaceutical company already had an antidote prepared or we would have lost our team leader and friend. Sam has been in Atlanta with Callen so it’s been rather quiet around here.
The fallout from our last case sometimes keeps me awake at night. Deeks told me about shooting out the window on the 16th floor and hanging as far out as possible to get a satellite signal for the phone. If I had been there, I wouldn’t have let him try but thankfully he did and was able to get in touch with Ops.
He also scared me with his lack of confidence when it came to disarming the explosives. I’m not sure what happened during his EOD training but I know he has the information in his head. More than likely he was a smartass to the instructor and that’s why he failed the test. He’s just too smart to have truly flunked it. All he needed was encouragement which I gladly gave him.
We had a ‘group Zen’ with Eric and Nell today and even though Deeks kept us all laughing instead of relaxing, I do know that laughter can most definitely reduce stress. Enjoying time with your friends is probably one of the best stress relievers of them all!
