The dreaded words “So,what else?”

i hear these words and it makes me wonder
what do i have in common with the person i am talking to?

is he/she gonna become a friend or just remain an acquaintance?

A conversation between 2people flowing smoothly
seconds floating by
1…2….3….4….5………….10………15………………22…………”So,what else?”…
.Eeeeeeeeeeekkkkks, pull on the brakes~~

Time for those those pregnant pauses
those sweeet eeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrr…ummmmmmmmmmm..
and other fillers
kicking into action in a coversation not going anywhere why am i talking to this person?
or rather am i talking or are they holding on to the line?

i wonder…
sometimes, i can talk, and go on n on with some people
fun, interesting, work and some more feature in the chit-chat
with others silent nothings are also fun
watching a movie in silence

the occasional comment, or smile, or laughter, or sigh
that is good enuf too
but with some time seems to drag on eeks…
wonder what to do
can i make it better?
can this thing between me n the other person get better?
or is this all there is?

ever wondered?

about those awkward silences between two people who are more than acquaintances but not yet in the “Friends” category???? do share~~
