American Sign Language: "enthusiasm" / "motivation" / "caffeine"

This sign can be used to mean such things as enthusiasm, motivation, and/or caffeine. (No, I'm not making that "caffeine" bit up. The "Starbucks" crowd have to have ways of discussing their habits and it seems they get their daily motivation from a cup of coffee.)

Rub your hands together "enthusiastically."



There isn't "one" definitive sign for "caffeine." Many people just spell it (or rather they spell something close to it.) Plus there are some cute or interesting signs for CAFFEINE. For example, there is a sign that is done in front of the eyes that starts as "S" hands that change into "C" hands representing the widening of the eyes and "alertness" that happens to people after they consume caffeine.
