A First Line From An Unwritten Story #1LinerWeds

They (whoever “they” are) say that every six minutes, there’s a lull in a conversation. They’re right, even when the conversation is with yourself.

I came up with the above line a few years ago, and just found it. Use it if you want.


Linda Hill brings you One-Liner Wednesday every Wednesday (duh). She has all the rules, as well as a comment section full of pingbacks from other participants, on her blog. Feel free to jump with your own, if you like.

  1. An interesting line.
    While I was working on a construction project in Tanzania, one of our senior managers, Charlie, proposed a theory that in any gathering, conversation would lull on the hour, at twenty past and at twenty to the hour. This, he told us, was due to the angels of silence flying over.
    I had many opportunities to test his theory during the two years I was there. It stood up, with a success rate better than 66%. It became our practice to check our watches when conversation lulled and, if appropriate, for someone to quietly mutter “Charlie’s Angels”.
