The Right Way

My grandfather tells me he would have been left-handed, but when he was a boy, they were not ALLOWED to be left-handed and if he tried to use his left hand his teachers or parents would slap it. Thank goodness my grandfather has corrected this aberrant behavior and to this day is now right-handed! I mean can you imagine how inconvenient and annoying it would be to all of us right-handed people to have to see people like my grandfather using their left hands our entire lives?

UGH! I remember having to use my left hand when my right was messed up! WAY too difficult, not to mention that my handwriting was nothing more than chicken scratch!

LOL It's amazing that they used to do that.

They tried that on me. I think I was told that only the Devil was left handed. Besides me, there's only one other person in my family that is left handed. I was pretty stubborn and refused to write with my right hand.

As a result of being practically the only one that is left handed, I later realized that I'm actually ambidextrous. So, I'm having fun with it.

I guess in some ways our educators have come a long way, but some still have a ways to go as far as I am concerned. What crazy thinking not allowing a person to use their left hand. My dad is left handed and lokks at it like the greatest thing is to be left handed (he likes to be different). He wanted at least one of his six children to be left handed, but no, all righties.

I don't mind people using their left hand as long as they don't do it in front of me.

At my young age (35), I remember that I had an art teacher who would slap me on the knuckles for using my left hand. I'm still a lefty, though. Guess she lost.
