What does it mean when someone flashes you a "C" while driving?

Tonight around midnight, in South City St. Louis, MO, my mom pulled up to a stoplight left of a pickup truck, and the thirty-something, white, crew-cut haired driver flashed her a hand sign that looked, from her perspective, like the letter "C." He did this several times over the next couple minutes whenever he pulled along side her, until she managed to lose him. Has anyone seen this before or know what it means?

How to Learn ASL in DC

What's a good way to learn ASL in Washington, DC? I'm aware of Gallaudet, but it looks as if I've missed the fall enrollment deadline for classes. I can enroll in the springtime, of course, but in the meantime, I'd like to start learning how to converse with the deaf community in DC. [more inside]

Baby Signs

I'm working on some basic sign language with my 14 month old, and now that the weather's warming up, he has a real need to communicate the word "outside" when he wants to go out and play (he'll go over to the door and babble, but it would be great if he could come to me and tell me what he wants). Can someone explain (or link to a site with picture/video) the sign for "outside," "outdoors," or something similar? Bonus if the gesture is fairly simple so that my son can catch on quickly.

A question about sign language.

A question for those familiar with American Sign Language (or other signed languages): When hearing speakers are surprised or shocked or wish to indicate they have just said something they shouldn't they often clap their hands over their mouth. This is usually immediate and seems almost involuntary. Is there something similar used by deaf signers or do they tend to use the same gesture hearing people do? [more inside]
