A friend asked me how many kids I have. In ASL, you hold up your thumb and first two fingers for 3, and your middle three fingers is 6. So the sign for 6 is the way most English speakers would do 3. So I hold up my middle 3 fingers, because I have 6 kids. But you know, 6 is such a crazy number for me to hold up, and I'm pretty new at ASL, so my friend is sure I must have meant 3. "NO, really, 6!" "You mean 3?" After about the 4th time, she finally believed me. Which is good, because I was afraid I'd have to call all my kids back from running down the hall and around the church to prove that I really have 6 kids :) |
