Happy International Left-Handers Day!

leftyI ate my eggs this morning with my left hand, and now I am drinking my coffee with my left in honor of International Left-handers Day. This holiday originated in the UK, and has now spread around the world. Its purpose is to raise awareness of the difficulties and disadvantages of being lefty, and to encourage righties to try lefty for a day.

So give it a try. Try to eat, drink, or even shoot hoops lefty. For more info visit http://www.lefthandersday.com/index.html

    Very difficult trying to teach left handed daughter to tie her sneaker laces.
