The most boring topic you can imagine is interesting to someone. Assume you’re interpreting for that someone.
Ok so it’s not, strictly speaking, “interpreting”- but that room is full of sugared-up Pre-k through 1st grade Deaf kids and their equally sugared-up hearing siblings. Yeahhh. Just put on that bunny suit and HOP!

Pay attention to signs on the door:

“OH! COME ON! REALLY?”
(There was a sign. It was on the door. Read the signs on the door)
Interpreters don’t ask other interpreters, “Are you here to interpret?”
