Amazonian Pillow Talk

| CT, USA | Aunts & Uncles, Cousins

(My cousin is looking at her Amazon wish list on her phone, as it’s getting near the holidays.)

Cousin: “Everything that’s in my Amazon cart is literally everything I need to live a happy life.”

Aunt: “Oh, really? What sorts of things do you need for a perfect life?”

Cousin: “Mostly pillows.”


American Thign Language

| Gresham, OR, USA | Aunts & Uncles, Popular

(My uncle has come into town for a day to help out with some family stuff and I go downstairs to greet him using sign language. I’m not deaf but I’m planning on taking a sign language class in the fall so I’m practicing. My uncle’s hands are bad and he can’t bend his thumb into his palm.)

Me: *In ASL* “Hello, Uncle [His Name]! How are you?”

Mom: “Oh, she’s practicing her sign language again.”

Uncle: “I used to know sign language but it’s been so long I think I’ve forgotten.”

Me: “I can spell my name, too.” *spells name which included an E*

Me: *holding the E in position which involved bending the thumb into the palm* “I use E a lot.”

Uncle: *tries but fails to copy me* “I can’t do it. My hand is bad. I’ll talk with a lisp.”
