As for awkward things I had to explains:
On my cousins birthday he received a bunch of used Bionicle's and in the pile was an incomplete Kiina, Since I'm the only one at the party to know who the character was I told my relatives that it was a female character in the lore. My Uncle's wife asks "How could you tell it's a girl?", things got really awkward and I said "You can't really unless you follow the story."
I could have handled the situation better.
