    Please help me think of this word.

    Hello guys!

    Awhile back when I was in the US, I remember watching this female news reporter and showing a video clip of a women who was at her Christmas party which was held at her office. She must have been letting herself go a little too much because the clip shown her ranting at her boss. Unbeknownst to her, her boss was standing right behind her listening to every word she was saying about him.

    Now, back to this female reporter, she has said something like "that was **********."

    I don't know remember what that word was so I would appreciate if any of you could help me out!

    There are far too many possibilities:

    That was embarrassing/humiliating/unfortunate/hilarious/funny/stupid/mortifying/wonderful/spectacular and "probably on You Tube 20 minutes later"!

    I understand that those could work, but what she was an adjective and it was quite a big word actually.

    All of my examples were adjectives! Some of them were quite big words too. Unless you can find a video of it somewhere on the net for us to watch (or for you to watch again), it will be sheer luck if someone happens to guess the right word.

    "That was awkward" has become a bit of a catch phrase
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I know and that was why I said they could work. I don't have the clip of this anchor showing the video, but the program was live and it was a local FOX channel, so I highly doutb that anyone would cap and reupload it on Youtube...... Thank you regardless though!

    THANK YOU, but it was not "awkward." This word that she said that has the meaning which goes by "juicy" and the word was not commonly used(Well, I have not heard a lot of people said it) and that was why I wanted to know find out what it was.

    How do you know that the word means "juicy"? Did you hear it correctly at the time and then look it up, but now you can't remember what it was?

    Have you gone back to the same online dictionary and asked it for a synonym for juicy? It might come up with the word you looked up. Depending on the dictionary and your settings, it might even remember your last few searches.
