We've all been there: the lull in a conversation. Maybe you've exhausted your body of information about the subject at hand. Maybe someone has made a conclusive statement and you find yourself at a loss for a response. Whatever the reason, a lull means it's time for a new topic. But how, you might ask, does one begin a new topic in a conversation? The answer, of course, is by implementing a segue.
Here are a list of examples of things you could say when you're ready to begin a new subject: (All these examples come from personal experience, i.e. I've actually said all of these things in recent conversations with other humans. I'm so not making this up.)
"So, you heard about Hitler, huh? Man, that's messed up."
"You know that one part in Braveheart when William Wallace's wife is killed? Dude, that part is so freakin' sad."
"What is up with musical theatre anyway?"
What do you do in a conversation lull?
