Are you serious, International Left-Handers’ Day?! Somebody must have been feeling “left” out in 1992 when they thought of this. All joking aside, let’s celebrate those who struggle with the common can-opener, corkscrews and smearing ink while writing. Because if it wasn’t for them we’d all be right…and that’s not right.
The frustration left-handers experience in everyday life is often overlooked by the right-handed majority but thankfully there is one place where southpaws aren’t “left” in the dust. Sorry, had to do it. That place is the ocean, which on any swell will throw blows with both it’s right and left. And although the ocean has a great right jab its left-handed uppercut can be phenomenal.
So instead of being proper and shaking right hands with the ocean, let’s honor it with some left-handed high fives because some of us need to enjoy the benefits of being goofy.
