Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.This week, the chosen word is "Awkward." And for some odd reason, I went humor/pop-culture with this one. Fans of the TV show will "get it." I know...I'm weird... Enjoy.

She continued, "You cannot just blurt out any bizarre sexual reference you think up! What the hell is wrong with you?"
Everyone around, including the nuns, were staring aghast -- even the most prude of them knew what was being talked about, and their disapproval was obvious for all to see.
"But, Lois," Peter whimpered like a beat-down dog, "I just wanted to show her my Spider-Man villain costume!"
