Funny Story: I once gave a speech with an American Sign Language interpreter. She was a very attractive, tall, fit woman with short reddish brown hair who, after the speech, came up and slugged me in the arm.
"Ow! What was that for?" I asked.
"That's for referencing musical lyrics when I've got deaf people in the audience."
The next time I gave a speech and she was signing, I started the speech by looking right at her.
"I shave my arms and legs from morning to sunset" I said, my eyes firmly fixed on her as she went through the pantomime.
I then explained to the audience that this was my form of pay back.
She was a good sport, and I think she liked the recognition, humor, and the fact that I remembered the message. And yes, I did know how signing that would look!
