I Giggle During Awkward Silence's

They Are HILARIOUS, How Can You Not? 838 People

    Or any awkward circumstance.

    People think i am lying a lot of the time when this happens. No matter the situation, i often have a hard time staying serious because most of the time it involves prolonged eye contact, which i CANNOT handle. Nervous laugher, not a liar. Wish there was something i could do...

    From Time To Time.

    It usually only happens when everyone is sitting there all quiet, and begin to look at one another not knowing what to say. Nine times out of ten the laughter is contagious and it takes the edge off the awkwardness. :)

    One day, I walked to my English class

    and sat down. Today was a day for a small test. The teacher was talking, passed out some papers and I sat next to some friends to check them out and see what they are up to. I asked then some questions and then took out a pencil. It was the middle of a test. Everyone was so...

    In my school, we were doing a tornado drill.

    We had to stand out in the hallway, away from any windows, quietly. Me and my best friend were right next to each other. And we burst out laughing. We couldn't stop the entire time. Needless to say, the teacher was pretty pissed.
