I suppose you do prefer your life more saturated. [It's instinctive banter. The smile that touches Joseph's mouth, just barely turns up the edges with something earnest and almost vulnerable, is unplanned. For just a fleeting second, right there, as Robert's face catches the light (he won't look at Joseph, but Joseph gets to look at him) and his profile illuminates-- it's there. Right here in the room with them.


And then it's fanned away like the smoke Robert breathes out.

The silver kind you like.

[Joseph's gotten good - excellent, even - at smiling through pain.]

I know you don't just drink whiskey, Robert.

[Joseph tilts the drink forward a bit more, a little closer without forcing his way into Robert's personal space. This will only be a win if Robert is the one to breach that bubble himself.

Like last time.
] I guess you might have preferred white zinfandel, though?
