Like some people collect art objects or pearl necklaces, I collect gestures. The larger my set of gestures, the more interactions I can have because I will be able to handle a larger set of possible circumstances. Whereas once I could only handle a few and so spent so much time alone. Throwing both arms up at the same time, I just learned, makes people look in my direction, and it also makes me look like I am fun to be with. I can get people around me, but I don't know how to keep them there for weeks. Some setbacks: I will never master all possible gestures; when a gesture fails to produce the desired effect I don't know where to place blame; like an accessory I might also one day be out of style.
