#you know this some real shit cause if you’re in the rain for like five minutes in jane austen you get all sick #and have to be ‘bedridden’ and ‘fussed over’ #so he went out after her in the regency equivalent of a shootout just to be like #’I LOVE YOU BUT YOUR FAMILY IS POOR AND EMBARRASSING’
Misha on West learning sign language
So he’s learning all these signs. His first sign was ‘dog’, and his next sign was ‘moon’. And he has a very thick accent with signing, like this is ‘moon’ [signs]—or I think that’s ‘moon’ [signs], but he goes, [signs] which can be kind of confusing with him cause this is his horse [signs] and a lot of the signs kind of bleed together, cause bird is supposed to be like this, [signs] he pinches his lip which is the same sign he does as eating. He has a thick accent. He knows all these words, he knows ‘more’, he knows ‘cracker’. He knows all this stuff, but he doesn’t know ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ yet. I was like, “Hey man, what’s going on? What are we? chopped liver?”
So I was in the bath with him and I was like, “Alright, let’s learn ‘mom’. This is the sign for ‘mom’ [signs] This is ‘mom’. This is ‘mom’” And he was looking at me, like paying attention, studying. He got it. Mom comes in the bath, and I was like, “West, what’s the sign for ‘Mom’?” And he goes [signs], shoves four fingers down his throat, hits his gag reflex and he goes [gags] a little. And his eyes widen with delight and he shoves further in and makes himself full on throw up. And it’s like a mini bout with baby bulimia.
