Have you ever noticed how people reach for a drink at the same time?
Tue, 18 Apr 2023
Think about the last time you were out with friends or family and there were drinks in front of each of you. When slight breaks in a conversation happened, did you all reach for and take a drink at the same time in that moment of stillness? It's possible the venn diagram for people reading this post and people who have noticed this is two separate circles.
I imagine we instinctually take that time to collect our thoughts or attempt to transition topics so you don't encounter awkward silence. If the latter is the case, I also believe maybe awkward silences aren't that bad.
