Best thing to say when there is an awkward silence; how to keep the conversation going. Those awkward silences, lulls in conversation can be really disconcerting. Here you think you are having this great conversation and all of a sudden, silence, and neither one of you can think of anything to say. That is when you need to pull out this phrase, "Oh, I forgot to tell you...." and even if it is the most off the wall thing, say it. Because this is an easy transition to just about any topic. And then, you will go on talking as if nothing happened.
