In the summer of 2001 I traveled to Europe. On the train from Italy to France, I was brushing up on basic French phrases with the aid of a more-fluent friend and a French-English dictionary. I also had a 24-hour flu and a pretty crazy fever.
For some reason, utterly unbeknownst to me now, I decided I simply *had* to learn how to say "Don't touch me! My hair is poisonous!" So, I did.
Later, after returning to North America, a friend taught me how to say it in ASL (American Sign Language). Ever since I have pondered learning it other languages, as well. My goal is to memorize it in at least 25.
