its not right

when my two sons were growing up they had this problem
that we had to deal with every day
in the old days the teachers would try real hard to correct it
many a child was harmed by their attempts

our biggest problem was when we would go out to eat
i never like sitting in a booth with a curved seat
unless you put them both on the right side as you face
the table from the view of the waitress
they were put together side by side which was sometimes
not a good idea
there was more distance between the parents and the kiddos
so we could perform discipline if needed

of course i always sat on the left side putting my wife she
between me and the kiddos

they are both left handed you see
if youve lived with a left hander you know what im talking about
sitting down to eat
then with a square table you have to take a different approach
one on opposite corners or two on one side


then there was those left handed scisssors that you could never
ever find when they were needed
thank goodness many of the scissors now are ambidextrous

then if you are a lefty you know about these guys dont you

so to make all those left handers of the world feel better
my two sons nephews and nieces and brother etal
here is a link to a slide show of  famous people who are left handed

oh add bart simpson to that list
wonder what side of the brain he uses

go through the list if you are left handed and you will feel much
better and know that you are in good company

share it with your left handed friends and family

are you right brained or left brained
click on this link and take this simple test

it only takes a few seconds to do
to find out which you are
left or right

it took very little time
im only slightly left brained 68%
does that mean i have to sit on the corner of the table too

  1. apparently I use my brain equally. 53% left and 47% right.. not exactly equal. By the way Doc, your link to the test doesn't work - I had to copy and paste the URL below the link. On the subject of lefties, I am married to one and my brother was also a lefty but back then the teachers forced lefthanded kids to write with the right hand.

    1. aideen
      the link worked ok when i tried it on my computer.
      that means you are a level headed person
