Five Things...

Gibbs walked through the door to his house and placed
his gun and badge on the table. He didn't realize he was
doing it until he had grabbed two beers instead of one
from the fridge. Not just any beer, but that obscenely
priced stuff that Tony liked. Sighing, he placed the
second, unopened beer back in the fridge and opened his
own. Who would have thought anyone would miss
DiNozzo being around, but Gibbs found himself doing
just that.

He walked into the living room and sank into the sofa,
propping his feet up on the coffee table. He smiled briefly
at the copy of GSM laying open to the centerfold on page
62. Maybe he would hang on to that copy, she was a
redhead after all.

Sometime later, after the beer was long gone, Gibbs made
his way to the basement and his boat. Working on
autopilot, he tripped over something that normally wasn't
on the staircase. It sent him pinwheeling down the stairs,
but he fortunately caught himself before he hit the
bottom. With his balance regained, he turned around to
find the culprit. Laying innocently on the stairs was one of
Tony's handheld game devices. Gibbs almost stepped on
it out of spite, but decided he would deliver a few extra
head slaps instead of taking it out on the innocent game.
He picked it up to carry to one of the workbenches as he
thought of how nice it had been working with Tony sitting
on the steps. Tonight he would be alone.

Many hours later, Gibbs stiffly (and safely) made his way
back upstairs for his nightly ritual. He frowned when he
saw a wadded up towel on the bathroom floor, toothpaste
stuck in the sink and some fingernail clippings next to the
toothpaste. He mentally made some new rules to inform
DiNozzo of the next time he stayed.

Finally ready to crawl into bed for his three hours of
needed sleep, Gibbs stopped short when he saw the white
envelope on his comforter. Picking it up and turning it
around to check for any hidden surprises, Gibbs finally
deemed it safe enough to open. Inside was a card with a
picture of a St. Bernard. Smiling, Gibbs opened it to find a
gift card to the coffee shop nearest the office and a brief
note...

"Thanks Boss."

Gibbs just smiled again as he sat the card on the
nightstand and got into bed. As he flicked the light off, he
spoke to the empty house around him, "No, thank you
DiNozzo."
