I was informed this afternoon that I am challenged....
Yes, you read that correctly.
My wonderful friend and co-worker, Mari, told me this afternoon during the course of a conversation that wasn't really going anywhere in particular, that left handed people have more mental issues than right handed people.. I'm not sure just where she gets her information from but I do know that she should watch it, because she admitted that she has a son who is left handed sooooo???
I have a perfectly wonderful explanation for this profound information, and anyone who is left handed will probably agree with me. We who are privileged to have been born in our right minds and are of course left handed were launched at birth into a left brained, right handed world. Left (no pun intended) to adjust our selves to a right handed world, mastering the use of simple things like scissors, magazines reading, yes believe it or not a left handed person prefers to read from back to front. Many tools with handles are preformed for right hand use force a left hander to use it in an awkward manor. These are just a few examples of the adjustments that right brained people have to deal with.
Of course we have mental issues just figuring out how to live a simple life in a right handed predominate world would make anyone have mental issues!!! Have you ever had to share a computer with a right handed person??? They are constantly leaving the mouse on the wrong side of the computer... oh, I tell you that is exasperating, not to mention the mental anguish that it causes a perfectly calm left handed person!!!!
I still like my friend and many of you know her well, she is a super nurse and a fun person to work with so I will have to forgive her for these false accusations against left handed little ole' me. But, I am curious are there any other left handed people out there who feel its not us who are mentally challenged but just maybe its the left brained world that is all wrong???
