"Well, I don't know what 'awkward' really means..."

    Every so often I'll use the term "awkward". Apparently it has caught on, because we were all watching a movie when somebody mentioned what would happen if the two male leads accidentally kissed each other instead of the girls.
    Bunji said, "Well, that would be awkward. I don't know what awkward means, but I'm pretty sure that would be awkward."
    Yes, Bunji.... That would be awkward. [​IMG]

    I suppose it wouldn't be a good idea to teach them the "your face is awkward" line?

    I've never heard of the "your face is awkward" line! But I have heard just "your face" used quite a lot as a 'smart' comeback to an insult.

    The word awkward can be quite awkward in itself. I find that if I say it too loudly, people all turn to stare, like "awkward" is some sort of curse word. :lol:

    I've found that if I use it around the wrong people, they start wondering what kind of a sick/dirty mind I have. Of course, that may be a question best left unanswered.

    Your face is a question better left unanswered!!

    Sorry, couldn't resist. Its a Federoff family random tradition, to respond to everything anyone else says with a "your face" line. Anyway, congratulations on teaching the sibs a new word, even if you they have no idea of it's meaning. [​IMG]

    Your face was the thing to say a few years ago. If you were cool, you threw at least one into your conversation with someone else, but I could never bring myself to do it. It just seemed....

    Well, awkward. :lau

    With my grown(ish) daughters and me, there is an official progression to a lighthearted argument, ending in insults. It goes like this:

    Oh, yeah? Well, your face!

    Your mom!

    Your mom's face!

    At some point, Betty White got pulled into it, so the final blow is, of course, "Betty White's face!"
