my little performance artist.

I had a girlfriend once who used the same hand gesture for everything. First point out, then down. This gesture could mean: I want something, look down, this is important, I intend to vote Liberal, the square of the hypoteneus of a right-angled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, or many other things.

whimsicalzephyr, on the other hand, is great at communicating using hand gestures and facial expressions.

A couple of days ago while her throat was too sore for speaking, she pointed at her throat and pretended to use a spoon. I said, “are you hungry?”

She shook her head. She then pointed to her throat again, pretended to put a spoon in her mouth, and then made a face like someone had stuck a cattle-prod up her ass.

I said, “Oh, Buckley’s Mixture”, and she nodded.

I think that whimsicalzephyr would be very good at sign language.

    I’d suck at sign language, my fingers aren’t bendy enough. I’d probably be great at pantomiming.
