Anytime some one brings up some totally awkward you pull out the "awkward flask". This is done by gesturing like you were to be pulling a flask out of a pocket, unscrewing the lid and then taking a swig. Note that this is just a gesture otherwise if you wanted to actually do this with a real flask around certain people you'd get just totally smashed. Like your mom for example. Anyway its really just another symbol showing how awkward a situation is.
" You know I totally less than three you but if the awkward flask were real I'd be an alcoholic"
chick: "so my mom was saying something the other day about satisfaction"
dude: *pulls out awkward flask*
