Lefties Unite

It’s National Left-Handers Day. Not a big deal to most folks.

To those in that ten percent, it has been a matter of coping in a right-handed world.

In case you haven’t already guessed, I’m left-handed. My hands had ink stains when writing on paper; chalk dust from writing on blackboards; notebook’s steel coils were on the “wrong side.”

Scissors: I learned to cut right-handed. School desks with arms on the right side–I sat sideways.

I found it amusing, when non-lefties commented, “I don’t understand how you can write, upside down, and backwards.”

It’s always been a challenge to cope in a right-handed world.  Fellow lefties, stand and be proud!
