Before we begin, I stole the Word of the Year idea from Violet’s blog. so the credit is all hers. Let’s dive in.
As you may know, I’m attempting to become fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). I’m not deaf, I’m hearing as the verbage in Deaf culture goes. (Deaf with a capital d, mind you.) I love ASL and have been volunteering in my local Deaf community for just over a year now. +10 social interaction points for this introvert. 😉
I saw Keith Wann perform live once and he was hysterical. He’s a Child/Kid of a Deaf Adult (CODA or KODA; I’ve seen it written both ways). He was born hearing and both of his parents are deaf. Keith has taught me a lot about Deaf culture and ASL and I wanted to pass this on.
The video is PG/PG13 depending on your view. He was a trickster as a kid. 😉 Also there’s an interpreter for all the hearing people. Enjoy!
Oh, the grand adventures of yardwork and home maintenance. I stopped by the Peregrine house this weekend to help with some chores. It’s what friends do, right? Well, as we say in theatre, my timing was all wrong.
This Mr. Reginald Swinebottom presents, and here are some more theatrics for you…
