JOSEPH rises and ranges about the room listlessly. He picks up a photograph of RONALD that is lying on the cabinet. He stares at it.

RONALD
(without looking up, remaining focused on his book)
What do I look like?

JOSEPH
You look like a scholar.

Scrutinizing it closely

Smoldering into the camera.

RONALD
(Still not looking up)
Do I wear glasses?

JOSEPH
Indeed.

RONALD
Am I waving at you?

JOSEPH
Yes.

RONALD
Does smoldering mean smile?

JOSEPH
It means to burn slowly with no flame.

RONALD
(finally looking up)
That is not a very nice thing to say.

JOSEPH
(Hurriedly, to appease him)
No, this is a compliment, burning like the embers of the campfire...

He pauses as if summoning up the words.

the hot cherry of a rope set aflame... the coals of a sauna.

RONALD
Wow, you are making an effort to get me back in the comfort zone

He closes his book and places it on the table.

OK, I am back in front of the fireplace. Now tell me a story.
