Today I decided to combine two of the writing prompts into one blog: (1) elaborate on one of the 22 things I've done (#11), and (2) write a blog with eight lines. I get extra credit for this, right?
The Story of the Deaf Guy in Eight Lines
I worked in a hot tourist attraction selling t-shirts in the West End
A magician's shop that employed some cute guys who possessed the sleight of hand was right next door.
One day one of those cute guys brought over a new, even cuter guy who could not hear or speak.
This new, cuter guy kept looking and smiling in my direction and I thought, I need to learn sign language and fast!
So I bought a book and studied day and night
One of the magician’s who noticed me flirting with the new guy pulled me aside and whispered, “You can’t go out with him – he’s been charged with sexually assaulting a minor!”
Unfortunately, it turned out to be true and my fascination with him vanished like Copperfield’s assistant.
A good thing came out of all this, though, when a deaf couple came in to my store a few months later and I was able to communicate with them!
