i wrote a song… in my mind

but… and…

awkward-pausei have this bad habit of ending my sentences with but or and when i speak.  whenever i talk to people, sometimes i just trail off with “blah blah blah, and…”  and that’s it.  that’s the end of my statement.  i’m surprised people don’t yell at me about this.  i would find this really annoying.  still confused as to what this looks like?  i’ll try to give an example:

some dude: hey enoch, what’s going on?

me: oh, nothing much, classes are going well and…

[long awkward pause]

some dude: yeah so, i started a new job this week

so this is how a lot of my conversations go.  i dunno what it is, i just can’t figure out the rest of my sentence, or maybe i just want to talk so much that i try to start a sentence even though i know i can’t finish.  gosh, so annoying.  how can i fix this?  talk more?  talk less?

  2. you just need to have something ready all the time, that’s always true. like
    “and… you know what i’m saying.”
    “and… stuff like that.”
    or you can pretend like you stuttered.
    “oh, nothing much, classes are going well and…and…android.”
    or “and…and…androgynous”

    i always accentuate the awkwardness by adding a very drawn out “so, um… yeah…” a few seconds in to the silence. maximum awkwardness guaranteed.
