An awkward event. It's like going to a preteen party. People are standing around bc they don't know what a real hoedown is.
Mom: "Hey son, how was the party?
Son: "It was a preteen hoedown. That's the last middle school dance I'm chaperoning for the PTA. I've never felt so much awkwardness in my life."
Younger son: "You mean...that's not how all hoedowns go?"
