Role play it out!

Was thinking about dice mechanics this afternoon and what occurred to me was for those instances when you don't really need the dice to resolve something, its probably smarter to role play out the situation.   I"m guessing this is highly obvious to most of you OSR guys/gals out there, but it occurred to me nonetheless and I decided to blog about it.  Partially because that is something that's missing from the games I've ran so far.  So rather than consider a difficulty class or a proficiency check for something, I'm going to do my best to say "Well explain to me what your planning on doing".  As to wether its talking to a NPC or trying something that's off the beaten path.  I'm just rambling at this point.
