When something weird or embarrassing happens, and there's that silence after it. No one really knows what to say, or choose not to say anything. Just back slowly away..
When you're making out with someone and then you realize your zipper is down. You zip it up slowly...But he notices *awkward*

A common word overused by kids in junior high, almost in the same group with "LOL" and "random!". Used to try and impress your preteen friends after or during a long pause between conversations. Also used by idiots whenever there is a pause in speech. Sometimes accompanied by a hand motion resembling a turtle or a turkey.
Teen 1: ...and that's what I did last Saturday!

Teens 2, 3, and 4: ...okay...

*silence*

Teen 5: ..aaaaawkwardddd...

Remember kids, lack of conversation isn't awkward until you actually say it is.

As Josh awkwardly walked to the bathroom he tripped over a book and two different TV cables, then stepped on a bag of chips and someone's hand. In the bathroom he tripped over the edge of a tile, fell headfirst into the toilet, and drowned.
