Write a stretch of two-person dialogue in which one of the participant’s responses is significantly non-verbal.
Adele: “What do you think of going to a movie tonight?”
Bernard shrugged his shoulders above the newspaper he held above his face.
Adele: “I heard that the new one with Marilyn Monroe is quite good.”
Bernard brought the newspaper down to his lap and raised his eyebrows inquisitively.
Adele: “It’s called ‘Some Like it Hot,’ or something like that.”
Bernard smiled and folded up the newspaper and rose from his chair. “Shall we?” he invited.
You get the idea.
