What to say when talking to your friends and can’t remember the word in English.

You know how sometimes you want to say something in your native language or a new language you are learning but you forget how to say it? What are some common ways you stall the conversation so you have a bit of time to think?

Here are some of the things I do:

1) drink water and start the sentence again so I don’t lose my chain of thought
2) hmmm... (most popular choice)
3) like I was saying, then find a new way to say what i was thinking without using the word
4) I use synonyms of the word

I’m so excited to hear what you guys use.
