同人傾計嘅時候，會唔會有時突然 諗唔到要講D咩？特別係講英文嘅時候，個腦需要小小loading 嘅時間。如果唔出聲，dead air太耐就會變得十分之尷尬，之後更加唔知點繼續個conversation。
A: Hey, how was your last presentation?
B: Well⋯It wasn’t great, but I figured out where it went wrong once I finished it.
- That’s an interesting question. / That’s a good question
有時interesting並唔係「真有趣」，只是一個對話既gap filler，很多時候是I have no idea how to answer既意思。根據情況不同，所代表既含義亦都各有千秋，要靠自己分辨啦。
A: So, if most of the members agree with this plan, why don’t you propose it to the boss?

A: Do you know what you want to do after you graduate?
B: Oh, I’ve never really thought about it, but I guess I’ll start by trying some internships?

A: Don’t you think working is so much better than studying in school?
B: I’ve never thought about it that way, but I guess everyone has their preferences.

A: What do you want to have for lunch?
B: Let me think.

A: Why is this person taking so long?

B: It depends on whether or not I can finish my work before 11.
