Signs of the times

Kitty, one of the Early Years Librarians, has been doing another story-and-song session at Senebene Library today. One of the regular customers has deaf parents and has British Sign Language, so she signs the session to add another dimension to the fun. I'd like to see it, it sounds really interesting.

Today Kitty was doing "Twinkle, twinkle, little star," with the movements, when she got to "Like a diamond in the sky," making a diamond shape with her thumbs and index fingers.

The lady signer blushed bright red.

"What have I done? What have I done?" asked Kitty, worried that her flies were open or something.

"I'll tell you later," said the lady.

It turns out that that is the BSL sign for "vagina."
