I just can’t stay silent

It was a challenge I knew I wouldn’t win, but I wanted to try it anyway.

I tried not to talk for one day straight. I had to restart a couple of times because it was really difficult. My best time without talking was 5 1⁄2 hours. During this challenge, I noticed that it was frustrating not being able to get involved in a conversation. After a while, it was hard to tell people what I wanted — like a big game of charades. I recommend this challenge if you are bored or if you want to challenge family or friends to see who cannot talk the longest.
