Eat the World?

I took sign language in high school.  I loved it!  It was the one subject that I was actually good at.

For some reason hearing people love to do songs in sign language.  I don't really understand this.  Deaf people can't hear music.  Anyhoo, for my sign language final I translated and signed "Feed the World" by Band Aid.  Man I loved that song!  (It's on my music player if you want to hear a little sample).

I signed the entire song and was pretty proud of myself.  I was confident that I had aced it and had blown everyone out of the water with my mad skills.  Until my friend Cindy let me know that I had signed "Eat the World" instead of "Feed the World" for the entire song.  Woops....Now THAT was embarrassing!


  1. Ok. I am having major dejavu here on your blog. Have I been here before? Have I commented already? Surely, if I was here I commented because that's how I roll but, I don't know. What's ringing a bell?

    Thanks for coming by my place! Sorry to hear about Belushi. Eww. Just reminded me of a sick ass Alan Thicke story I have to share one of these Fridays. *shudder*

  2. yes, I do think you've been here before, probably from SITS. Feel free to stop by anytime! :)

  3. Yes! I was here right after your surgery!! I remember now! I'm assuming all is better?

  4. Ok, that has got to be the funniest story I have heard in a while. Love it! Happy Sits Saturday!

  5. Hysterical. I'm all for eating! My 4 year old is learning some sign language right now at preschool. I'm convinced he makes half the stuff up!

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

    Wonderful site you have here. Can't wait to come back and look around.

  6. Happy Saturday!

    Stopping by from SITS!

    I liked sign language too, and even taught my children when they were small. I am not sure how much they remember though.

  7. Lol :) I've always wanted to be able to sign.

    ps. Just saw your count down. 13 days?! Ahhhh!!!

  8. BWAHAHAHAHA!!! This is particularly hysterical to me because I used to sign all of the choir music at my church in high school. So, I know how easy it is to get confused or just caught up in the moment and suddenly you've replaced "Lord" with "grandfather" and it's all downhill from there. Thanks for sharing. That totally took me back.

  9. Oh how funny! I have wanted to learn sign language for the longest time!

  10. great story! I would have never known the difference!

  11. Oh my gosh, that is SO FUNNY. Well, I mean, feed/eat... at least it's in the same ballpark!

    Okay, so, have you read about my DM concert experience? WHAT? You haven't read all my archives yet? What's wrong with you, woman!? Ha... check it, you'll appreciate it: Best show ever.

    And just so you know, it's Sarah. My last name has 'fox' in it, which is where foxy came from. Yeah, I tried to be somewhat anon in the beginning. I'm pretty sure it's all outta the bag now, but I think foxy has stuck.

  12. OMGosh, I had totally forgotten that story! Heeheehee! Still a good one!

    Eat the world...not a bad motto, y'know?

  13. HA HA HA!!!! Thats awsome!!! Eat the world...i will laugh about this for a long time :O)


What's up little pup?
