I have a completely new fervor for you. I have been unable to speak since Thursday thanks to a cold that gave me laryngitis. How do you order a pizza? How do you get technical assistance? I've realized it's completely impractical to drive up to the drive-thru...they can't see you when you hold up your finger for the number you want. I now want to learn sign language. It is my new goal. How did anyone out there learn the language? Is sign-language universal or is it a country by country thing? (English, American-English, Spanish, etc.?) Are there government programs to learn it or do you have to learn it through a college course?
