We need a secret sign and handshake!

For the secret sign, may I suggest an open hand salute that has the index finger along the length of the nose, fingers rigid and together. I see it as an *Anti-blinker* symbol indicating that we see both sides of issues.

As to the handshake, any suggestions?

Secret sign smiley - ok

Brilliant idea, clzoomer..

*tries it*

smiley - erm

... only where would you put the thumb?

*getting nose tangled up in fingers*

Folded into the palm could work.

Now about the secret handshake... press the thumb into the back of the other person's hand? Or leave the pinky out of the handshake?

smiley - weird

How am I discussing secret handshakes past midnight on a Saturday??

Just so long as we don't have to wear funny hats and sing silly songs smiley - winkeye

You almost have to nestle your nose in the crook between your thumb and forefinger. smiley - erm

As to the handshake I think it has to be dramatically different from most. I'm just not sure how to do that... smiley - smiley

*sitting in front of computer fiddling with fingers against face*
Not sure I quite get it. What's a blinker, anyway?
*gets ready for the you-don't-know-what-a-blinker-is-where-on-the-planet-have-you-been-hiding?*

How dramatic can a handshake get before it ceases to be a handshake?

Blinkers are those things they put on horses so they can only see straight ahead. Sort of like two black little paddles on each side of the harness. Used for horses with wagons or carriages mostly so they aren't spooked by things not in their way.

Wilma, to tell you the truth I just want a salute or handshake for the meet in July! smiley - laugh

Yes, up and dowm and straight out from the nose.

If she has the time machine, why doesn't she come back yesterday? smiley - erm

smiley - erm Good question. Why didn't she come back before she left? I don't know. *worried* But she said she'd be gone a week. Hope she didn't lose the manual.

I haven't a copy of the manual, but I think she can only come back just after she left not before. It all has to do with Hitler's grandfather or something....

I don't think I'm familiar with that one.
But wouldn't that preclude travelling back in time? I mean, if she can travel back to 5 minutes ago, wouldn't that be like returning before she left?

My bet is that she did return it before she left, but she crashed it upon arrival. She took it again, so she could un-crash it.

smiley - boing I'm back!

*parks the dusty smiley - tardis in the corner of the thread*

so, secret signage smiley - bigeyes I had a convo with my cousin while I was in Lebanon... very secret soc, he is *taps nose* *nudge nudge* *wink wink* and all that. He was saying the best secret signs are ones that people do anyway but in a combo that is unusual... so a cough with a scratch of the ear would be an example...

Shall we try for some combos? See which one feels best for us?

*sits back with a smiley - tea amd waits for the fun*
