What to say when there's an awkward silence

Fill the Silence is a tumblr of fun facts that you can bust out when you find yourself in the middle of an awkward conversational pause. Thumbs up.

P.S. Another dorky fun fact.

Good idea! I guess #2 is why we hate our own voice in videos. I always was annoyed by my cousins high voice until I heard mine. We sound just alike. :(((

I always wondered about the voice thing - in your head versus hearing on a recording - so so interesting! My voice is, in actuality, really high pitched but it doesn't sound so bad to me :) :) ... bummer for everybody else!

I usually say something like " I've read this great report the other day about the traffic of clandestine dishwashers in Belarus " or, " Oh, look over there, Bruce Willis ! "

Michelle Panting said...

Ha ha ha, these are fantastic and I will probably try to use them once in awhile. Unfortunately I think they might make the conversation even more awkward.

Kristina Fox said...

I've always had the sneaky suspicion that my middle, ring, and pinky fingernails grew faster and now I'm validated!! Well, at least for one of them :)
