I try not to cuss, generally. But when I manage to hurt myself, at least a few choice words sneak out.

I'm learning sign language, it's not so hard, I've already mastered one finger.

Ahhhh…I’ve already learned a couple different ones, but I don’t think I’m as quick to learn as you. My skills have taken me a lifetime.
