    1) a UFO – to respond to those off-the-wall comments by friends and co-workers that came from no where
    2) hand-wave emoticon (as in, jedi hand-wave) – would be similar to high-five, but a serious face and the hand slowly passing right-to-left in a “nothing to see here” or “not what you’re looking for” feel.
