Rule 139

The audience will be distracted by the interpreters, for about 3 minutes. Then they will all realize they don’t understand Sign Language, mutter “pretty,” and just watch the rest of the performance.

Rule 50

Interpreters! Go for gold medal work, always! But, realize that somedays your best effort earns a silver or a bronze; and accept there will be days when, if you are lucky, your sweat and tears earn a medal ranking somewhere between chewing gum foil and dental amalgam.
