There is a tart fruit in Nicaragua called mamones -- you climb trees to grab
a bunch -- they are walnut size. You take a bite and slide it from side to
side in your mouth to take in the flavor. For the sign, you pick the fruit
off the back of your left hand, place it in your mouth, SLIDE IT AROUND A
BIT while your fingers (Group 3) are touching your lips, then withdraw your
hand. Anyway, the only question we have is how to write the mouth motion:
puckered lips shifting back and forth (left-right). (Puckered lips + double
mouth wrinkle??)

Your request for feedback on the color coding will take some time, but I am
acknowledging your inquiry.
