Daily Prompt : Drawing a Blank >>> Zoning Out

When was the last time your walked away from a discussion, only to think of The Perfect Comeback hours later? Recreate the scene for us, and use your winning line.

Silence  is a true friend who never betrays.- Confucius

I remember the last time I had dinner when all of my friends from business school were present. It was one of those rare times that we had gone out not to celebrate anyone’s birthday, but to talk and just be with each other.
Since we no longer see each other regularly, the discussions were much livelier than usual — but I wasn’t my usual self.  I was not in the mood to talk though I tried to follow the conversations.  This was unusual as I was with a group of people, whose company I enjoy the most. 

Rather than pretend to enjoy myself,  I zoned out.  Just sat there — enjoyed my meal and my attention deficiency (quite intentional)  led me to play footsies with my hubby and then later,  I took a picture of my saucer.

No great comebacks during the rest of the evening.   Just me being silent and making friends with my saucer instead.  

Lookie — look.  I took a picture for posterity.
