had an interesting conversation about handedness

recently someone noticed that I am left-handed, lol…

  

George and I were left-handed although both our girls are right-handed…

I watched my grandsons carefully as they began grabbing things, hoping that one might be left-handed… so wanted to be able to teach someone some of the tricks to getting through life as a leftie

didn’t happen… and really I don’t want to make any of their lives more difficult…

did a bit of research and came across this Wikipedia definition of handedness…

  

  

some of the information also reminded me of the negative connotations regarding lefties…

we talked about how writing is more difficult as your hand goes over the written words… not so bad now, but when ink took a while to dry, the page might end up completely smudged…

most utensils are designed for right-handed people… have learned to adapt over the years and to use the right-handed items… still don’t find left-handed scissors at all comfortable… 

there are certainly more items made recently to be usable for lefties… you just have to look at each item to see if it works for you…

the one thing I’ve learned over the years is how to adaptall the time… 

everything I have learned has involved mirroring what was being shown to me… always most difficult with sports, lol…

  

my son-in-law brought me this magnet a while ago, lol…
