[Joseph still pulls out his chair in one fluid motion, but there's a moment where his entire face pauses in quiet surprise.

It's a moment that's as familiar as it is painful, once it passes and Joseph can register it for what it was. He fades into a soft chuckle, eyes flitting down to the tabletop again.

You know, for a moment there, I thought you were trying to pull one over on me again.

And then brings the margarita back up to his mouth and takes a long swallow.
