When texting, an awkward attempt at using a joke to recover from a previous text in which something either stupid or awkward was said followed by no response from the reciever.

Ashley: Omg, did you see me trip today in the hall? It was sooo embarassing :P
Mark: yeah, you looked like an idiot.
(after realizing what he said, mark was in need of a text recover)
Mark: uh I tripped one time and I fell though...

Cindy: so what are you up to this

Jack: nothin wanna go to the dance?
(7 minutes later, no response)
Jack: yeah so I guess this girl tripped in front of like everyone today..haha..
