Signs….seriously, they are everywhere. Sometimes I understand them….sometimes I just stop and ponder….
Seriously…is this not redundant??
The kind of “sign” I’m talking about is a “sign” we give with our hands. Like a wave “hello”, a thumbs up when something is done right, a “talk to the hand” kinda sign when a co-worker is a bitch-bitching away…..
Sometimes we see people and they give us a sign and we smile…
Sometimes we get a sign and we would like to pummel the other person with a sledgehammer….
A few weeks ago we had some people over and my sister and I were having a conversation with her daughter-in-law. It was a little noisy with other people talking, it was late in the evening, and we may or may not have had a bit too much wine, but we laughed hysterically at our wit when we recognized a “gesture” as a “sign in the making”! You see, her daughter-in-law was describing a website window with 2 screens, one on top of the other…..
Well, this is what I pictured anyways with they way her hands were demonstrating the screen like so….
But then….you see, my sister got all lost in the conversation, again, maybe having something to do with the wine consumption, and she said, “What the hell was that with your hands??” ….and she made the gesture.
It was explained once again, and then my sister stated, “Oh, I thought that was some kind of sign you were making at me….”
So then….we looked at each other, and because we think so much alike, we both made the sign at each other and said, “Grrrrr, fuck you!”
(Cuz that’s how we roll)
I know, I know….you may not be getting this whole “sign” thing here, and if not, it’s okay because my spouse was not really laughing too much either. I figured he just didn’t get it. (Sometimes that happens….) Or maybe the alcohol had gotten to him too. Regardless, we are so gonna use this sign and start a trend. In fact….my spouse, who I thought was clueless when we had this conversation, was the first person to use the sign other than my sister and I.
My teen’s facebook got hacked. After the spouse posted something about all hackers getting crucified or something by the Sicilian side of my daughter’s family, he looked at me and said THIS:
So, yeah….and then some!!
He WAS paying attention to the conversation.
Just when you think you’ve got ‘em figured out.
