Random Thoughts From Uncle Dale: Let Me Give You An In Class Example…

Dear ASL to Spoken-English Students:

Don’t be so easily impressed:

I’ve taught this principle for thirteen years; and,

I picked the video!

Rule 672

Filling out paperwork at 2:23 AM in the emergency room:

Nurse: I’m sorry you have to work so late.

Uncle Dale: (Realizing how both common and odd that is to say) I’m sorry you have to work so late.

Nurse: Well, you know, it’s my job.

UD: Funny you should mention that, it’s mine too.

We both stared at each other for a moment or two and both of us burst out laughing. I have no idea why either one of us thought that was so funny but at 2:30 in the morning it really was!

Rule 638

When a storyteller tells you, “oh don’t worry, I’m telling the same story that you interpreted for last time, remember!

It’s never the same story.
