It’s a Small (Deaf) World, After All

I related a funny story about the small Deaf world to my friend the other night and decided to write it down:

When I was about 19, I moved to Ohio and worked as a teller during the day while attending paralegal school at night. An older deaf couple we’ll call the Wilsons regularly visited the bank but never came to my window. Finally, one day I saw them come in and I waved them over. Of course, the first question the husband asked was how I knew ASL.

“Mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, aunts & uncles, everyone all Deaf,” I told them.
