"You could get a better chair," Rodney complained, trying to get comfortable without (a) falling off the chair or (b) breaking the chair completely.
"You don't even have a chair in your office," John pointed out mildly. "So, what do you need?"
Rodney -- carefully -- fidgeted for a moment before taking a deep breath. "Okay, this is hard because I know we're friends and you're the military commander and all but there are things I can't tell you," Rodney said in one breath.
"And?" John drawled.
"You aren't mad?" Rodney peered at John in surprise.
John shrugged. "There are military things I don't tell you," John said.
Rodney's eyes got shifty for a moment before he got his face under control. John had figured that Rodney had his fingers in the military part of the computer system. There really wasn't anything that Rodney shouldn't see, but he had to play the game.
"Yeah, but they aren't important," Rodney waved it off.
"And you can't tell me something that's important?" John asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Ummm... yes?" Rodney said, ears turning red.
