The awkward walk through somone that you don't know's house when you go there for a party or there for the first time. The walkward may involve walking past parents of a friend or other people at a party that you don't know. Inevitably trying to find the toilet or to find more food, the walkward is a necessary yet uncomfortable part of an evening.
I've never been here before and I don't want to do the walkward on my own
