Everyone keeps stalling.
I don’t know for what.
They have a secret, I know it.
They’re just hiding it from me.
I don’t know what they are thinking.
I hate surprises.
They know that. They all know that.
Why would they do such a thing?
But then again, maybe it’s not them stalling.
Maybe, it’s me.
I should just get it over with.

A bit more time. I’m willing my fingers to move, but they’re stuck… It’s always situations like this when I freeze up… in reality, never in the simulations… I just need a bit more time… but the timer on this stupid bomb won’t stop ticking away… so is it the red wire or the green one…?

I’m stalling for time. The microphone is pointed at my mouth the camera light-bulbs are popping and flashing around me and what seems like a million voices come at me. Did I do it? I don’t have an answer and I’m stalling for time.

I’m stalling for time. The microphone is pointed at my mouth, the camera bulbs pop and flash around me and what sounds like a million voices come at me all babbling at once. Did I do it? I don’t have an answer and I’m stalling for time.
i have to stall to get the things that mean the most to me, so i could therefore explain to the best of my ability what I really am saying or doing.

“You’re stalling, Maria,” Johnny said as he took the girls hand, “You remember you can tell me anything, right?”
“Yeah,” replied the girl, her hands shaking slightly and her head throbbing, “I just can’t admit everything to myself.”

her eyes darted around the room looking for something to say. she stared right at his crotch and held her eyes there for a good few seconds, immediately his eyes dropped to his crotch and his eyes said he’d already forgotten

Stalling – a multi farious word that means so much – stalling? procrastinating? deliberating? taking time? not forcing things to happen but allowing them to? what is the true meaning of the word stalling? perhaps I am. Perhaps I am putting roadblocks in front of myself. But then again, I don’t think so…

I am stalling just now thinking about the garden instead of cleaning the kitchen! That is typical of me, wondering what plants to buy etc. Then I go to the garden and wander around wondering where to start the make over.

I was standing in line at the goliath my friends giggling and laughing as the approached closer and closer to the front of the trecherous coasters line. I kept stalling, excuses, excuses, excuses. I was horrified.

He talked and talked. Ramin was stalling and stalling. He couldn’t hear the verdict. The judge entered the courtroom. She stood on the stand. She seemed to go very very slowly to Ramin.

Zach is stalling his shot at the doctors office. He is trying to make weird noises so the nurse giving it to him will wait extra time. He is stalling the shot.

Stalling, the hesitation, the fear, the panic. I wait at the train stop knowing that I’ll be late to school. I tell my mom to put the petal to the metal and she blows through the stop with her blue minivan. I stop at school and my mom hands me my lunch bag. I dash into the school and make my way to my class. I put my backpack in my locker and walk into class. Right on time…..

I was running our of time. My sister was still out of the house running to drop something off at her friends house. I was supposed to cover for her. My dad comes in and asks me where she is. “Uhhhhh” “Im not sure” I was just stalling. I am in a lot of trouble if I lie to my dad but I’d be betrying my sister if I tell.

“Wait, I think I forgot something. Oh, it’s not. If I am down here I may as well get a snack and maybe-” “Maria, stop stalling and do your homework,” said her dad
My students are experts at stalling. They stall when they forget their homework. They try to stall their teachers and engage them in a conversation that is completely unrelated to the class. They like to leave the classroom and spend time in the bathroom stall so they can stall the work they have to do!

The car stalled as we heaved and pushed the massive bulk of the Ford out of the rut to escape the imminent wall of sand.

The man was stalling. He had to make his choice now. Kill himself, or kill the world. What should he do? Live the rest of his life as a mere assistant to the grievous man who was holding the imaginary knife in front of him? Or jump of the building waiting for serendipity. The man was stalling.
The man across from him was stalling too, he was locked inside himself. He was trying to keep himself out. The man could only chose everyone’s fate at this point.
The two men were only prolonging the inevitable.

Someone was deniing the fact that they like Ramin. Ramin always showed affections to this person but they didn’t take it in by the heart. One day he gave her flowers but she didn’t accept it. When Ramin walked away,Toby stole her heart. Then he gave her a Taco.
By Eli on 06.05.2014
Someone I know is stalling and denying the fact they like Ramin. That is when I realized she really liked Toby! Ramin was very upset and did not know what to do so he started stalling.

“Mariana! Quit stalling or you will miss your flight,” screamed my mom from down the stairs. I was heading of the Gracie Boarding School for Girls in Sundance, California. I was leaving behind everything I had ever known in the small town of Dalton, Kansas. so i had a theory, If I staid in my room and stalled then I wouldn’t have to go.

The boy was stalling when he heard that he was to take a bath. He was a very stinky kid who hated baths. However, for all his stalling the boy had to take a bath and wash himself very well with lemon and lavender soap. Then after he got out of the bath, he tried stalling to get out of doing his homework for English class. The stalling technique he used got him nowhere again so he had to do his English homework, regretfully. He tried stalling again so he wouldn’t get in trouble for breaking his mother’s precious Japanese vase while he was throwing a tantrum about his English homework. He however, did not stall when it was time for dessert. He absolutely loved dessert time and for dessert time, he got a large slice of chocolate brownie cake which was his favorite.

The carpets needed vacuuming, the toilet needed to be scrubbed. It was probably a good use of her to time to once more check her inbox. Anything but getting into the car and driving to the doctor. If she could just put it off for another day, then it would go away. There was no reason to know today.

10 minutes. I nervously glance at the clock, hoping to stall for more time. I’m being forced out onto
the roof. Nine minutes. “Not yet.” I yell forcefully, hoping for more time as I rush down the stairs, back onto the ground into the rushing street, trying to find my friend. Eight minutes. I see him. I know it’s him because of his piercing eyes, black as the night. Seven minutes. I grab his shoulder as his eyes lock with mine, pulling him into a tight embrace. “I’m sorry.” I whisper, and he’s gone from sight. Six minutes. I yell an apology at the top of my lungs, as everyone turns to stare. Four minutes. I sob into my hands, realizing my mistake. I must compose myself. I walk back to the top of the building and yell, “Stop!” I am told to quit stalling, I had made a commitment. One minute. I glance down at the world. Thirty seconds. Twenty, ten, five, and the world is on fire.

I’m stalling just writing this. What on earth can I say? There’s not much to write about it, in fact I’m just wondering what everyone else has said. I hope that it’s appropriate stuff cause I’d love to use this with my students, it’s a really cool idea. Maybe I’ll write some curse words to see what happens. Fuck. Okay. Go. Yep.
One man in a car.
Eight thousand three hundred sixty seven cars in a row,
stalling for an endless afternoon.

I always feel like I’m stalling for some reason or another, even if there IS NO REASON. Sometimes this fact surprises me as a person. Some days, when I know I have time to complete something, I just sit and wait, knowing that it will always be there tomorrow for me to do. Stalling is the bane of my existence!

Deirdre stalled for time, brushing biscuit crumbs from her trousers. The dragon leaned its massive head closer and peered at her through one blood-red eye.
Deirdre gulped. The creature’s breath alone was like a furnace. What would its flame be like, should she answer wrong?
“I think, sir,” she said after a moment, “that yes, I should very much like a ride.”
