Pete's Log: this will end badly

Entry #1683, Tue, April 20, 2010, 13:10 CET (Random Crap)
(posted when I was 31 years old.)

I can't even remember when I learned the gang sign for the Bloods. I just know I've amused myself for years by flashing the sign at people in the sorts of environments where a silly white boy can get away with such things. The sign involves forming the letters "blo" with your right hand and "od" with your left hand and putting it all together. I've been doing it for so long that I can put it together in under a second from muscle memory.

Since moving to Munich, I have taught the sign to Miles, an Englishman of my acquaintance. He's gotten pretty good at it himself.

I'm not sure how the topic came up, but over beers after frisbee on Sunday, I was showing Irish Pete how to make this sign. The three German girls at the table with us also wanted to learn, so we had a quick bloods session.

Later, when Miles came to our end of the table, I told the girls to show him what I had taught them. It took a couple seconds, but all three of them flashed the bloods sign at him. Perhaps one of the greatest moments of my life.

Hehe I can do it too! And I just spent the last couple of minutes alternatively flashing the HW sign and the blood sign. So silly. But now blood makes me think of this video. Quite possibly the cutest ever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fVDGu82FeQ
