Conversation Stopper

I was on the phone to a friend just recently, and she had been saying something with regards to men; and her being able to '...still turn on the charm, when she wants to...'.
I realised that I had left a bit of a pause after she made the remark- it wasn't intentional, I just kinda drifted (I was distracted by a squirrel outside the window!); but I think it may have been construed as a how do I respond positively to that and be convincing silence!
