What is like pulling teeth?

When you talk to someone who is not very forthcoming; you want information, you want answers, but he clams up.

Your interlocutor does not return the conversational ball, and you have to keep picking it up and pitching it.

Your every question elicits monosyllablic responses, so that you have to frame each question exactly enough to allow those single syllables to mean something to you.
