For this assignment, I had to record a video of someone signing a word using American Sign Language (ASL).
I completed this assignment because I love ASL (even though I only took the first level of ASL in high school). My dream is to become an American Sign Language interpreter someday. And sign at important events, for important people, and honestly, signing is so much fun!
If I signed too fast or if you simply can’t understand sign, then watch the video again or take ASL.
Just kidding! I signed the phrase, “Gag me with a spoon.” People use this phrase when there is an unfortunate and/or unpleasant situation. This phrase originates all the way back to the 80s. But there are still some people who use that saying today. For instance, actress Sadie Sink, used this quote in a scene from the hit Netflix show, Stranger Things. Where she played Maxine Mayfield.
I decided to sign a phrase instead of a word to give the assignment some more effort and creativity. So enjoy my fingerspelling!
