#265: Tell us about a talent you’d love to have…but don’t.
To be able to understand and use British Sign Language fluently – not a talent per se but a skill I long to possess. I know the fingerspelling alphabet but it’s not exactly going to get me very far in a conversation! My desire to learn this language was reignited whilst watching The L Word on Netflix, as from season 4 a deaf character joined the main cast (I’m still convinced, and fuming slightly, that it was a rush ending to the show as there are so many things that didn’t add up – plus with the average season consisting of 12 episodes and the final season only showing 8, there’s definitely reason to believe it came to a fairly abrupt end!). BSL is a truly amazing language and seems a complex one at that, but with over 70 million people using signing as their first language, I want to be able to communicate efficiently and remove any barriers that might have cropped up.
p.s. I’ve just realised that there are only 100 more blog prompts to go until the 365 day challenge is complete!
