Jon’s voice was just detached enough for Stephen to know he wasn’t really joking.
“No! That was just a bit.”
“Licking each other’s bowls? Really?”
Stephen was not in the mood for Jon’s passive aggressive schtick, especially under the circumstances.
“Well, not all of us get to canoodle with Anderson Cooper, do we?” Jon actually had the chutzpah to look surprised. “So don’t give me shit for grabbing a little late-night nookie where I can find it. OK?”
For just a second Jon made the “little boy” face that always made Stephen melt and forgive everything.
