an uncomfertable or strainge moment in a scocal situation resulting from the meating of sketch and prude. the balence between the two contrasting partys creates the awkard fealing. in any awkard situation you should be able to identify the sketch and the prude.
when the forigin extange student walkied in on the two girls changing and just stood there, it was such an awkward situation. he was the sketch for being there and not leaving, and they were the prudes because they were uncomfterable about being naked.

Not awkward.

A word used by people- mainly high school trend followers- to describe anything, anywhere, at any time, when no other words enter the brain.

Awkward used to be a word people used to describe a time when tension fills the air, eye contact is made and broken, and an uncomfortable mood sets in.
More likely than not, the case in question was not in any way awkward.
Girl: ...And then the doctor told me it was broken and I'd have to get a cast.

High school trend follower: Awkward!
