That Deaf Guy: Loud Clothes!

Who loves LOUD clothes? I knew a guy who loved when his interpreters would wear bright colors and prints instead of dark colors. It made him happy, but for many, it would make them dizzy to see such loud colors as a background for the interpreter's signs.
Hello friends,
As a profoundly deaf person the word "loud" takes on a whole knew meaning. There are many loud things in my world. I may not be able to hear them but I can feel them and definetly see them. Oh boy do I see them! smile emoticon Enjoy! -Matt and Kay
