Revelation

 

I just had a revelation. I now know why I can’t cut a nice slice of bread from a loaf.

IT”S BECAUSE I’M LEFT HANDED.

It’s my bad, because I am not a detail person hence have never really looked closely at knives. As my left-hander newsletter explains it:

Most “normal” knives for right-handers are serrated on the LEFT of the blade – the idea being that the effect of the serrations counter-acts the natural inward (clockwise as you see it) twisting action of the right hand, leading to a straight cut. If a left-hander uses one of these knives, the serrations actually EMPHASIZE the natural anti-clockwise twisting motion of the left hand which leads to the classic “overhanging” loaf or whatever is being cut.

Holy moses. I am going to have to buy a left-handed knife to see if I will cut things straighter!

I received said newsletter because International Left-Handers Day is Monday, August 13. Get ready, my lefty friends!

Here are some posters you can print out.

A few weeks ago, my mom told me that a colleague’s child was being forced to use his/her right hand in school. It’s appalling!!

The world needs more lefties, if you ask me.

Lefties Unite!
