Why ask?

-> A very short dialogue that just popped up in my mind. Orrie/Archie (Orrie is one of the few private detectives that Mr. Wolfe considers good enough to hire from time to time. He's very pretty, but usually has no manners.)
Warnings: someone may be offended, but I don't really give a damn
Disclaimer: still not mine (and it doesn't matter for how long I stare at them …)

.
………We were sitting in the front room of one very nice brownstone on W 35th Street - that is Orrie and I - and waiting for Fred and Saul to show up for our regular poker session. I was just pouring myself a glass of bourbon, when Orrie asked me: "What do you think about sodomy?"
………It took me a while to recover, because the question certainly threw me for the loop. "Sodomy?"
………He nodded. "Homosexuality."
………I decided to play dumb. "What about it?"
………"I asked what you thought about it."
………"About homosexuality?"
………"Yes."
………"Why?"
………"Sorry what?"
………"Why do you ask?"
………"I just want to know."
………"What I think about homosexuality?"
………"Yes."
………"Why?"
………"What?" I could see he was getting frustrated.
………"Why do you want to know?"
………"I don't know."
………"You don't know? Then why do you ask."
………"Hey! Will you give me an answer or not?"
………"Or not."
………"Then why the hell do I bother asking?"
………"My thoughts exactly."

Sulking? What has that git of yours done to you this time?

P.S. What were you doing up at three o'clock at night?
