Underwater Hand Signals

I was getting ready to dive with a scuba instructor with whom I had never dived before. Among other necessary precautions, she wanted to review underwater hand signals.

She waved her hand and pointed at her ear.

Me: “Equalization problem.”

She then waved her hand and pointed at her unadorned left ring finger.

I paused for a moment, thinking.

Me: “Marriage problem?”

She replied, “yes, I’m not married!”

We shared a laugh at that.

For the record, I don’t believe she was being flirtatious. I believe she is just lamenting being single, and probably cracks this joke all the time to break the ice with new students.

Because I didn’t have a camera out at the time, special thanks to hands model Phoebe Huang for this article’s featured image. You can contact Phoebe via Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube:
