This is awesome, and so is the phone news. Not gonna lie, though. The first thing I thought of was Ted Mosby and his random ASL knowledge that never gets explained.
I’ve been wanting to learn for a wicked long time. Had a client a few years back who was deaf, and hadn’t seen his kids in two years because his wife refused to abide by orders. Usually, you can just file for contempt, but the court-appointed ASL interpreter was always a no show, so we couldn’t get the case heard. It was one of the most horrific miscarriages of justice I’ve ever personally witnessed, and if I can get fluent, I can add myself to the list as a certified ASL interpreter for the courts and offer my services to deaf clients. Which would be awesome.
And I thought there was an explanation at some point. Like he had a deaf cousin or something? Also you just reminded me that one of the questions in one of my practice bar quizzes was about Ted Mosby and I just wanted to write in E) What would Ted Mosby Do?. Now I need to find it.
