Vital Signs

This evening’s “how was your day” conversation:

The Queen: I made a major faux pas in baby sign-language class.

Me: What happened?

Q: Well, all of the women in the class are super religious, and one of them asked what the sign was for “Jesus.” And the teacher said that you touch the palm of your left hand with your right index finger and then vice versa, like for stigmata? And I totally snickered.

M: You snickered at the cruicifixion of our Lord?

Q: I couldn’t help it! I just thought it was ridiculous. I mean, what if the sign for every famous person was the way they died?

M: You’d move your head back and to the left to sign “JFK.”

Q: Exactly. And to sign “Elvis” you would sit on a toilet.
