I tend to imagine that conversation with the "right" (or in this case "oder") being the moment when the one speaking looks up to check that the other person is listening (and keeping up with the babble ). While it is maybe not an invitation to an actual response, I take it to be an opportunity for me (as the listener) to say "uh huh" or something equally fillerish.
Peg, that hits the nail on the head. Thanks. Best post on this thread.
