Oh, aye, she would. Followed him to the ends of the world, Eva would have. He
brushed the thought aside as Hilda continued to rant and rave, divesting himself
of his clothes and pulling on his grimy working breeches and shirt without looking
at his wife again. He let her voice flow over him and around him but not into his
head; he knew from such scenes in the past that his detachment was the one
thing that reduced her to a heap of quivering frustration and then a stony silence

stony silence until the First Officer quietly said, 'I have to fly with you, I do not have
to drink with you'. There was an embarrassing silence! Strangely enough the
Captain made no reference to that during the remainder of the trip, but still
continued to be just as aggressive. I am happy to say that despite what occurred,
the First Officer was promoted to Captain rank. My wife met that Captain some
time later and could not understand why crews found him so difficult as she
thought him to be ...

A silence. We gather that G.G. has no questions to ask about these children. 'I
see they closed the school,' she says after a while. 'Oh! very many years ago. The
whole place is only residèntial since—in the seventies, I think. A little time after
Mama's death.' This, too, meets with a stony silence from G.G. Why did she come
to Germany? I'm beginning to wonder. If she didn't want to see her sister and
reminisce about the past, why did she vote yes in the first place? Nothing Greta
has to ...

Now he stepped up to the side of the Dilbian who had been trading insults with
ThingorTwo and poked him in the ribs. “Hey!” said Bill. The head of the Dilbian
jerked around. Seated, his hairy face was on a level with Bill's and he stared at
Bill now from a distance of less than three feet. His jaw dropped. Behind him, the
laughter and other sounds died out, giving way to a stony silence as everyone at
the table goggled incredulously at Bill. “Sorry to bother you,” said Bill, stiffly, in his

The two arms of the fight-or-flight response each represent ways a spouse can
respond to an attack. The most obvious is to fight back, lashing out in anger. That
route typically ends in a fruitless shouting match. But the alternative response,
fleeing, can be more pernicious, particularly when the “flight" is a retreat into
stony silence. Stonewalling is the ultimate defense. The stonewaller just goes
blank, in effect withdrawing from the conversation by responding with a stony
expression and ...

Lauren managed to maintain a stony silence throughout the long day, inspite
ofJason's occasional efforts to restore peace between them. She had no intention
ofeven speaking to him, much less making him the promise he wanted. Still, she
found it difficult not to respond to Jason's attempts to charm her and coax a smile
from her. She also found that her vow of silence had unsuspected disadvantages.
She was thoroughly bored, for one thing, since she had refusedto respond to his
