Did you know that today is “National Left-Hander’s Day?”
What? You haven’t heard of this? Check out Left-Handers Day. A whole day to celebrate being Left-Handed!
Is this just another Hallmark holiday created to boost card sales? Not at all! Today is the day that all the people in their “right minds” enter the “Lefty Zone” for 1 day and do everything left-handed for the day. Even if you are not left-handed, I’m sure you can see where it might get a little tiresome for lefties living in a right-handed world. If you are right-handed you might be thinking, “Is this really a big deal?” Yes, it really is!
Homes and offices are set up to favor the right-handed. For instance, hand held can-openers and scissors are primarily designed for right-handed people. Or how about the common everyday pen that smudges as lefties write from left to right and drag their hand along ink that hasn’t yet dried? Desks, computer mouses, sinks, and even door knobs, are designed with the right-handed, left-brained, in mind.
LEFT To Your Own Devices
Maybe you were not aware that the majority of youth team sport coaches are right-handed. These coaches are perfectly equipped to coach a child in the mechanics of hitting, swinging a golf club, or serving a ball, from a right-handed perspective. It is nearly impossible for a right-handed coach to switch over and work effectively with a left-handed child. The same can be said for music teachers. Most left-handed kids have to figure it out on their own when it comes to learning the finer points of their sport or interest.
