Not so scared

sign

I just finished my second day at the Texas School of the Deaf. WHEW! It is so interesting being in that world three hours a day, a world where sound does not matter. People slam the doors constantly because they can’t hear the horribly shocking sound that it makes. The kid’s are still experimenting with their voice, so they make little vocalizations quite often. And oh the hearing aids…..let me tell ya, when there is more than one person in close proximity who are wearing those things the feedback that is produced is unreal. I am subjected to this high pitch, whiney sound for the entire time I am there. I am sorta getting use to it, but every once in a while I am like “what the hell is that?” My signing skills need improvement. Around those kids, I sign like my post stroke grandpa spoke. Christ, it is embarrassing. They understand though, and are very accepting of me which is more than I can say for how some of them are treated in the “hearing” world. What a shame.

Thanks Erin. Are you going to get a blog? You should, I bet you have plenty of interesting stories to tell.

As for Anonymous (COLIN), you are a bastard but you are right. That last post almost made me puke, and I wrote the damn thing. Whatever, you are still a punk ass bastard. Bastard.

I had a great time last night. I wish you and Dale would have come with us, but I know ya'll needed your "alone time". I am a fan of Gino (hot), but not b-ball really. I must admit, it was more interesting to watch the game when I had two people that were explaining it to me.

Yah, Dale and I made out by the light of the scary looking girls on Extreme Makeover. Whatever... I kicked his scrawny ass out the door as soon as ya'll left and threw your bottle of wine at his back! - L
