Puzzled expression, thoughtful expression, small exhale.
"Too long. You probably aren't then."
"I didn't say that. I was just thinking."
"Thinking means hesitation, thinking means you have no gut emotion, no yes or no."
"No it doesn't. It means I'm giving your question due care and consideration."
"Due care and consideration? What the hell kind of phrase is that?"
"A thoughtful one."
"Cold as ice baby, cold as ice."
