Tomorrow is one of my favorite holidays!! Yes, folks, it’s International Left-Handers Day! It’s a happy day for 15% of the world’s population.
Here’s a cool infographic. I’m boggled by the fact that I am left-handed, seeing as males are twice as likely to be left-handed and two right-handed parents only have a 2% chance of having a lefty kid. Talk about beating the odds.
It’s funny to think about all of the things I’ve adapted to, and all of the things I do differently, which I don’t even consciously think about. Cutting with scissors and knives, using spiral notebooks, turning doorknobs, drinking from designed coffee mugs (the design is on the “right side”), using rulers, having ink on the side of my hand as my hand moves over wet ink while writing…
A very happy holiday to Tracy, Mary, and Amanda (have I forgotten anyone??), and my boys Prince William, Michael Stipe, and Barack Obama.
