Hey Abbsolutely,
Conference is dull, dull, dull. Date with agent cutie pie before I left was awesome. He cooked and it was scrummy!!!
Love and hugs,

Abby smiles as she reads the message from one of her oldest friends. She's so absorbed in her memories she doesn't notice the agent standing in her doorway until he clears his throat and steps into the lab.

"Tony. Don't scare me like that."
"Sorry. Thought I'd come to visit while McGeek and Ziva fetch the victim's wife."
"I love it when you visit."
"I know."
"I know you know. Facial recognition has no hits so far and is taking forrrr-ever. I'm just catching up on my email."
"So who is special agent cutie pie?"
"I can't tell you that."
"Why not?"
'They've only had two dates. It's a bit premature to be making it public."
"I'm a very special investigator. I will find out somehow."
She sighs. "Okay. They met on the case last week...when Diane's new husband went missing..."
DiNozzo's mouth drops open momentarily as he figures it out. "Fornell."
"Yep." She nods. "She dared him to have dinner with her and I think he accepted only because he couldn't think of a way to say no politely. It turns out they have a lot in common. He likes feisty women and Carol is certainly that." Abby grins a little wickedly.

"Why does she call him special agent cutie pie?"
"Well special agent sunshine was already taken."
"It's one of my nicknames for Gibbs."
Just then a loud ping comes from her computer so they turn their attention back to the case.
