Bawl/cry your eyes out/crying a ton/etc. It’s fun, you try! Bawl Sorry (S-hand) Like. Ohhh, I like you. You like me? Thanks. Like. Love. You’ll see a lot of Deaf say ILY (I love you).
It’s more like hey! or Bye! Love ya! ILY! ILY! It’s not true love. You wouldn’t say to your husband
ILY you soooo much (crying from the love you feel). that’s not like real I loooove you so so
much (bawling from your overwhelm of emotions) Okay? ILY is more hey ASL friend! See ya later ILY! Hate. You hate me? Why? Awesome. One of my favorite signs, awesome. Awesome She’s awesome! Cool. Old sign — Groovy! Cool. Terrible/Awful This is hate. This is terrible/awful. Hate! Terrible/awful. Do you see the difference? Hate is down, Terrible/awful is up with a swoop. Weird. He’s weird. I’m weird!? Never. Lousy/Lame. Bored. Not in your nose… that’s gross. On the nostril.
You’re so bored you’re going to pick your nose. Fine. Fine!! I’m fine! Leave it! Oh, I’m fine.
