In a world that is built for all of us right-handed people, I think it is kind of neat that someone came up with a special day for all those left-handed people in the world and in our lives. You may not know, but today is Left Hander's Day. So Happy Left Hander's Day to all my left-handed family members (quick count is 4) and a very special Happy 50th Birthday to my left-handed husband.
The world has been built for right-handed people, you can find examples everywhere…
- In school, desks are built right handed.
- Left handed items usually cost more.
- Scissors…need I say more?
- Computer mouses are designed for right handeds.
Those are just a few items. I found a web site that has information on Left Hander's Day and there is some interesting information. Click here to check it out. Are you left-handed? Do you want to share some of the difficutlies that you deal with in our right-handed world? Please share in the comment section below.
But as my husband always says, he (and all the other lefties in the world) is the only in his "right" mind. So if you have any lefties in your life, make sure to wish them a Happy Left Hander's Day today.
My husband celebrated his 50th Birthday last week and in honor that and for my leftie I made a special card for him…yes, it is a left-handed Birthday card. It is left-handed because it opens on the left side, not on the right side like the majority of card that are made.
I am primarily a right handed person, but there are things that I am capable of doing left-handed and a couple things that I feel more comfortable doing left-handed, like shooting pool. I really had fun making this card for my husband, but I have to admit that when it came to writing on the inside of the card it felt really strange.
Here is the card that I made for him.
