Being Left-Handed Is All Right

I’m sure you marked your calendar, but in case you forgot: It’s International Left-Handers Day! As a “special” southpaw who’s overcome anything from spiral notebooks to scissors, I can appreciate … well, the appreciation.

If you’re not sure how to celebrate this momentous occasion, take a few suggestions from a real-life and totally-not-made-up website, LeftHandersDay.com.The possibilities are endless!:

And, thanks to a report from ABC, I have nothing to worry about:

Despite their minority status, lefties are more likely to excel in music, mathematics and athletics … But left-handedness has also been linked to a higher risk of developmental disorders and mental illness.

I’m an Olympic (watching) champion, and my musical career spans as far as elementary-level trivia. All that talent is totally worth the mental illness. It was bound to happen anyway.
