International Lefterhanders Day 8/13

I just want to give a quick shout out to all my fellow lefties on our official holiday last Sunday 8/13. I can't believe I missed it. Better late than never. I hope everyone had a great Sunday.

I play sports with my left hand, but do everything else with my right.

Ambidextrous action

Yeah, about time us lefties are recognized!

It's bad enough having to cope with scissors, van doors, can openers, and all the other stuff they have out there...

Group hug for all of us southpaws

for instance............
the Latin Word for Left =
"sinister"
NO WONDER we got such bad press for 1,000's of years!!!


I have found I've become more ambidexterous, but writing and drawing are still very left for me. While I am more ambi-haned- I stillwill automatically reach etc with my Left hand, excepttions like hand-shakes.

what also HAS helped is ambi-sisscors.

I also remember trying to pour a Right-handed cooking pot with the pour thingie [on the left side] using my left hand!

When my grandmother was a child to be lefthanded wasn't allowed. Everybody was forced to learn using the right hand (she had to because she broke her arm) and with some people it caused, sometimes serious, brain damage. My mother once told me from a woman whose sense for music was gone, so she couldn't find any song good or bad.
Only in the late 50's, early 60's the people and the state realized that it was totally crap what they have done all these years.

^ MY great-grandmother would get angry with me if I tried reaching for something with my left hand.

I turned out alright, though, I like to think.
