    Its a Bit Creepy...

    Its a bit creepy when there is awkard silence. I hate it, but it is part of life. so I deal with it. It just makes me unsure of what I should do or say sometimes. I wish I could avoid all kind of awkward silence, but that is kinda next to impossible.

    I hate awkward silences *pause* Mostly the ones in the *pause* middle of a sentence. It's like, if your going to talk to me talk! I usually end up filling them in with even more awkward questions like "how about that rock" or "look at that"

    It Almost Seems Like You Can Predict Them...
