Language Complications ~ Part 3
Quick Quiz! If a picture is worth a thousand words, and a silence is worth a thousand pictures, then how many words is a thousand and ONE silences worth?
First person to answer correctly gets a shiny prize! (Comment below if you think you know the answer!)
SILENCES. I'm sure we've all be part of these unfortunate things, and maybe even been the cause of a few of them, right?
Something like this:
Me: *runs into classroom*
Me: *pants* Sorry I'm late! *Pants*
Me: *pants* *sits down* *pants*
Teacher: Awkward..? Now, like I was saying, please take out your calculus homework
*sound of paper shuffling around*
Me: *pant* Eh? *pant* When did we learn calculus? *pant*
(I have asthma so ignore the overlong panting please)
Class: *stares* ...SILENCE!...
Me: *pant* *looks at neighbor's textbook* *pant*
Neighbor's Book: "Grade 12 Advanced Math Functions"
Me: *pant* *looks at my textbook* *pant*
My book: "123, its as Easy as A, B, C!"
Me: ...[insert choice swear word here] I'm in the wrong class!
Or like this:
You: Expels Gas
(Now you know why the "Me"s were crossed out and edited?)
Yes...those killing things we call "silences". They are a waste of awkwardness, a waste of space, and a waste of precious oxygen! Especially with the carbon levels so high nowadays, I urge you all to use our oxygen well, and not waste it on things like silences!
Lets have a strike against silences!

PS: Ack. You know that thing you sometimes get when you write (or type) a word repeatedly and then after a while you feel like the word is spelt wrong even though its actually correct? I seem to be getting that with the word "silence" ... wonder how that happened?
