Remedy: Awkward Silences


Problem:  Awkward Silences.

Probable Reason:  An awkward silence means an angel is passing over.  Oh, you thought it was you?  Naw.

Inky’s Remedy: The next time there is an awkward silence turn to the person next to you and as seriously as possible say something like the below…

  • Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong. This however, isn’t that moment.
  • Coincidence or angel booby trap, how do you tell?
  • Where would fallen angels be without gravity?

Then slowly shake your head, and meander away.  Awkward silence=Poof!  Your personal interest level to others=90%.
