English term or phrase: without missing a beat
"Without missing a beat, she smiles coyly at ***** and asks...."
To explain the story, the woman has just yelled at a man for raping her in high school and, then, "without missing a beat," she turns to another guy to ask him if that's the sort of thing he was hoping to hear.
I wanted to delete the phrase but it is too important to do so.
