when one of two parties are speaking on the telephone past ten p.m. when one of the parties asks a question that could or could not be life changing. the opposite party reacts in a way that could only be described by the sounds of crickets.
ben husband: hey madi, i dont know where your heart is. why are you acting this way? i love you and i want us to be together.
madi wife: *no response hence the use of crickets*
ben husband: stop giving me those crickets and tell me how you feel.
