American Sign Language: "suppose" / "if" "what if?"
Discussion: The sign for "suppose" taps the tip of an "i" hand on the cheek twice.
Why use the "i" hand for this sign?
Because I told you to.
Okay, besides that, this sign also means "if." Thus it is really the "IF" sign which in turn is based on the "hmmm, we will see what happens sign." (Don't worry about it. Just tap the pinkie on the cheek twice, or once if you are feeling lazy.)
