Jab your non-dominant hand with the index and thumb of the dominant
hand as if holding a needle (or stinger). Then slap the top of your
hand as if squashing the little bloodsucker dead.
MOSQUITO: (funny / cool version)
I see this version show up from time to time.
In the version above I'm holding my left fist on my nose and I'm moving
my dominant (right) hand --doing a twisting movement as if my nose were a drill
and I'm a mosquito "drilling for blood."
An alternate way to do this version would be
to hold the non-dominant "fist" about a foot from the nose, and hold
the dominant hand fist between the nose and the non-dominant hand
and then move the dominant hand as if turning a "hand drill."
Either way, ham
it up, have a good time. You only live once (and not for very long
if you are the mosquito in version 1).
student raised her hand in class and asked what I meant by a "hand
drill." I realized that today's generation of college "kids" have
likely never seen an old fashioned "hand drill."
In the old days people used drills that worked without electricity.
These were "before my time" too mind you. But I have seen one before
and I think they are pretty cool.
