Wordfuse (Blather on Edition)

This is that awkward anxious feeling somewhere in the sudden lull between one person's incessant yapping and even more yapping when the so-called listener is finally given a moment to remark but has understandably already stopped listening thus has no idea how to respond and compensates with a nod and fake smile. It's a classic.

Incessant yappers drain me.

Yes. This word is needed, like when you're in the middle of an argument and realize you're wrong.

I'm constantly doing the fake smile /nod so often, people just think I'm quiet.

Paul McCormick said...

The smile and nod really is the safest thing to do in that situation. Solid word, man.
