Hey y'all! Today's welcome Wednesday is a Deaf comedian who does stand-up, skits, story-telling and more.
Check out his Facebook Page called Train Zoom!
For those unfamiliar with Deaf Culture - Train Zoom or Train Gone is an idiom similar to the English "you missed it". You show up and ask what's going on but they aren't going to re-tell the story.
Here's one of Alexander's stories:
So come out and support some #DeafTalent and contact Alexander and book his Train Zoom act!
Hey y'all! I'm starting a new category called Fun Friday!
I want to share posts such as:
Stay warm y'all and have a great weekend!
If you have any stories, pictures, or suggestions, please send them in! I'd love to read them!
You'd be surprised to find out that people think we're flirting or are really interested in them when we're just trying to lipread them.
I forget that in "hearing" culture that they sometimes don't look at each other while talking.
"Just Stop! I'm not flirting! It's called lipreading"
Have a great weekend!
Today's Welcome Wednesday is a Facebook Page called "The Flipside" which features short and funny clips about life as a Deaf person and ASL.
Whenever I see a new video from him in my Newsfeed, I know I'm going to have a good laugh. I hope you check him out!
