Restart should do the trick.

No I actually deleted this. Mac support says I need to reinstall os to get the .trash back

I found this http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/trash.html
Do you think I should do it?

It looks like the terminal trick above will do the trick. Does anyone advise against it?

I'm no terminal expert, but this looks pretty strait forward. The worst that can happen is you have to do a reinstall of the OS, which is not that big of a deal.
