                  1. Hi Sweetie, I know the shaka, after all I spent my misspent youth in So California but I also know….and this was WAY before your time…”Call Me”.

                    Done in person up close to your ear was call me; your hand was a telephone head set, your fingers, the receiver and sender, the small shaking gesture was the symbol for the ring.

                    NOT ASL but universal for us old farts. Who by the way have learned what the shaka means even if they don’t:… “Go out fooling around, picking up beach boys and eating Chinese Food”

                    as my old boy friend’s mother would describe my behavior.

                    The icon could be either but again…what da hey? It makes more sense in the comments than…call me. ~~dru~~
