My sign language is bad, but I can speak a little Tarzan with my hands. Working with special needs kids, I had to teach myself basic words so that I could communicate with them at school and in their homes. I thought it would be fun to share the sign for cactus with you all. When I first discovered what the hand gesture was, I laughed so hard. I'm not going to do that hand gesture, but I'll let your mind figure it out below:) I was working out in the gardens at a group home when someone flipped me off. Using my terrible sign, I said, "Excuse me?" and then they pointed to the cactus. Imagine all the fun that followed that little gem of knowledge:) To be on the safe side, I asked an ASL teacher and it was confirmed. He was signing cactus not insulting me. Phewww.
