English Idioms in ASL #2 | Vlogmas

Hello, I’m Rogan and welcome to Vlogmas. I realized that in my previous videos, I signed day 5, day 7. Really, those are the dates, not the actual number of the video. So let’s just move on.

Today, I wanted to do a few more English idioms. I will link the previous video up there somewhere. In the previous video, I signed the literal wording, the ASL translation, then explained it. For this time, I will sign just ASL. The English captions are for what the idioms are. And, because this is really for those who already know ASL, I’m not going to explain in-depth. If you don’t understand why I signed it that way, go ahead and ask in the comments. Most of them, I think are pretty clear why I signed it that way. Ready?

Don’t beat around the bush.
After some reflection, he decided to bite the bullet.
Don’t jump the gun.
She seriously rubbed me the wrong way.
Well, she’s got the best of both worlds.
I let them know that their package would be delayed for one or two days, and they blew their roof.
I’ve been telling you this over and over. Get it through your thick skull.
She let things get out of hand.
The boss wasn’t happy, but she decided to let her off the hook.
That was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

That’s it for today! Leave in the comments one of the following: are there any of my translations that you would do differently? Are there any future English idioms that you want to see translated to ASL? I have a list, but I want to know what you want to see. Or something else? Up to you! I know some of you might ask me about idioms in ASL. I’m working on that, it might be a future video, maybe. That’s it for today, thanks for watching!
