Yesterday Dylan and I were discussing going golfing together. He loves to golf and I have never been but I would love to go with him. He asked me if I would golf left-handed or right-handed. I thought back to my miniature golf days and remember that I am a right-handed golfer. This led into the discussion of how weird I am.
I am left handed but, I play most sports right handed, cut with scissors right handed (because my Kindergarten teacher wouldn't let me be left-handed), and a few other things right handed, but for the most part I am left handed. I have a hard time giving directions because I get my left and rights mixed up, I had terrible handwriting forever until I forced myself to perfect my penmanship.
I found that at the alternative middle school I taught at, a majority of my students were left-handed and a quite a few teachers were too. I thought that this was very interesting.
Left-handed people do think differently than right-handed people, and we are a little lost in the right-handed world. So, to all you lefty's out there I feel your pain of being misunderstood, and not being able to use a right-handed water fountain or right-handed desk.
If your left handed or love a lefty give a shout out to left-handedness today. We are not weird!!! We are special and unique!!!! We are needed. Left-handers blog with interesting info
