I AM--I AM JOSH

AND I'M VERY EXCITEDTO BE HERE.

MY WHOLE LIFE,I'VE BEEN TOLD

THAT I'M AN AWKWARD PERSON.

PEOPLE HAVE SAID THISTO ME FOREVER,

AND I FOUND THATREALLY FRUSTRATING.

BUT WHAT I HAVE FOUNDMORE FRUSTRATING

IS THAT, RECENTLY,IT'S BECOME, LIKE,

COOL AND TRENDYTO BE AWKWARD.

LIKE, I DON'T KNOWIF YOU SEE THIS NOW.

I WAS EATING LUNCHAROUND THIS GIRL

WHO'S, LIKE,REALLY PRETTY AND POPULAR,

AND SHE SPILLEDSOME OF HER SALAD,

AND SHE WAS LIKE,"AWKWARD!"

AND I JUST WANT TO BE LIKE,IT'S NOT AWKWARD!

YOU'RE JUST DROPPING LETTUCE.I HATE MYSELF.

THESE ARE VERYDIFFERENT THINGS.

LIKE, REAL AWKWARD PEOPLE,

WHEN YOU DOSOMETHING UNCOMFORTABLE,

YOU'RE NOT LIKE, "AWKWARD."

YOU'RE LIKE, "I'M GONNA BE ALONEUNTIL I'M DEAD."

LIKE, I WAS HANGING OUTWITH A BUDDY OF MINE

WHO'S BEEN COOLMY WHOLE LIFE.

HE'S ONE OF MY COOLEST FRIENDS,AND HE CAME UP TO ME,

AND HE WAS LIKE,"DUDE, I'M SO AWKWARD."

AND I WAS LIKE, "WHY?"

AND HE WAS LIKE,"MAN, IT'S SO AWKWARD FOR ME

"TO TEXT BECKYTO HAVE SEX

NOW THAT I'M SECRETLY BANGINGHER ROOMMATE."

AWKWARD, RIGHT?

I WAS LIKE, "NO."

WHEN I WAS COMING UPIN AWKWARD,

IT WASN'T AWKWARD TEXTING BECKYTO HAVE SEX

NOW THAT YOU'RE SECRETLYBANGING HER ROOMMATE.

I THOUGHT IT WAS AWKWARDTEXTING BECKY,

"HEY, WHAT ARE YOUUP TO TONIGHT?"

AND ALSO, "HEY, WHAT'SGOING DOWN TONIGHT?"

'CAUSE YOU WERE WRITINGTWO DRAFTS,

AND YOU SENT THEMAT THE SAME TIME,

AND YOU CAN'T EVEN LIETHAT IT'S A DUPLICATE

'CAUSE IT'S DIFFERENT WORDS.

SO SHE DOESN'T RESPONDTO YOU.

SO THEN YOU TEXT HER ROOMMATE.YOU'RE LIKE,

"HEY, IS BECKY'S PHONE BROKEN?L.O.L., NO BIG DEAL,"

BUT IT IS A BIG DEAL.

SHE DOESN'T RESPONDTO YOU EITHER,

AND THEN,FOR THE NEXT YEAR,

WITHOUT PUTTING UP A FIGHT,

YOU JUST FADEOUT OF THEIR LIVES...

UNTIL YOUR FRIENDHAS SEX WITH THEM BOTH

AND HAS THE AUDACITYTO TELL YOU

HOW AWKWARD THAT IS.

THAT'S THE AWKWARD NEIGHBORHOODI'M FROM.
