  1. This was a really nice rundown. Thanks a lot.

    But you suggest not using the method: "Hello? (beat) Well actually… (beat) Hold on." — but you don't offer an alternative? What would you do instead? It wouldn't make sense to have all those bits of dialogue right next to each other…

    thanks 🙂
