LEFT IS COOL

GREETINGS EVERY ONE
Today is International left handers day.  August 13 was declared to be International left handers day in 1976 to create awareness of the difficulties left handed people face in the world that is mostly made of right handed people.
So, to all my loved ones, my friends, my neighbours, my blogger friends and my coworkers and bosses, I wish a Happy Left Handers Day. Please give yourselves a treat or give you left handed buddy a treat.

I have a sister that is a lefty.
We always had to sit at the dinner table a certain way so we wouldn't bump each other when we ate.
She used to have a book all about left-handers. Interesting.

I took a class once in college where the professor discussed at some length how the "left-hand" was associated with evil. Good to see though that on a day like this, all is not bad :)

As a scrub nurse in surgery I've learned to use both hands to do tasks. Working with left handed surgeons is crazy too because the needles must be loaded on the needle holders differently and cutting with scissors that are made for righties is also a challenge. I guess I could give the surgeon I'm working with tomorrow a treat..he's our only leftie!

i've never heard of left handers day
back in the day of my mothers childhood, people were punished for using their left hand. (it was a bad thing) My mother was one of them. so she grew up using both.

happy left handers day everyone!

Thank you for your comment tonight. I think a mothers heart is a mothers heart no matter where they hail from. I miss my son. He is so young to be away from me. 14 actually. I will be fine tomorrow. Just had a rough moment today. :)

Who knew? I will belatedly pass this one to my left handed son.

Hi Munir .. left-handed people are meant to be more intelligent!!

Two interesting thoughts .. my great uncle - mother's side .. was ill .. and the doctor couldn't work out why .. eventually came - were you ever Left Handed - coming form the early 1900s - they be forced to write right handed! Yes came the reply .. well change to use that hand ... he healed!

Another not so relevant - but my uncle on my father's side .. was LH .. he was ill too .. eventually the Dr said .. you've got a sore between your toe .. lets heal that = all was well and so was he!!

Incredible what little things can do ... thought you'd be interested .. cheers Hilary

My brother learned to use his left hand after he broke his right arm falling from a tree! He could write and even play baseball left handed or right handed.
