The Awkward Silence
I'm ok with those that are close to me but anyone else and i'm like "erm......" and there's always awkward silences.
One time i had to phone my SIL, anyway after much prompting from hubby i called. Things weren't too bad at the start but i soon ran out of things to say to her....i made all the dumb comments like i usually do when i feel awkward but i was running out of them. Now i just have to mention that i don't invite her round my house because she has a child from hell (my dogs have better manners). Anyway after a silence that lasted sooo long i thought she'd hung up i just blurted out "why don't you come round our house for coffee...oh and bring the little one, it would be so nice to see her". Unfortunately she agreed. As soon as i got off the phone i slapped myself. The nerves get me everytime, i open my mouth then regret it. I now stick to texting her.
