As the right – hemisphere of the brain controls the left side, only left-handed people are in their right minds!
Being a lefty, I’ve had to get used to a world where everything has been designed for people whose dominant hand is their right one. From routine things like trying to make a fountain pen work for me to using scissors and other things like giving people things with my left hand (which offends so many people for reasons I have never understood) and getting confused with which direction to move when I’m hugging someone, being left-handed has been challenging in a right handers world. So, imagine my joy when my father told me that August 13th is celebrated as Left Handers Day (Take that you rightys! We have a whole day DEDICATED to US!)
I know this post has come rather late in the day, but, to all the other lefty’s out there who have faced these sort of mini challenges simply because they prefer using their left hands, know that you are not alone! I’d love to hear what you have to say…
Left handers of the world unite! 🙂
