Suck It, Spiral Notebooks
Always a classy broad, I is.
It’s International Left-Handers Day, and I am super excited to celebrate with a plethora of markers, scissors and all the things that have plagued me for 26 years. You know, it’s hard out here for a pimp.*
Let’s take a look at some really-fun-and-not-at-all-depressing facts about my people:
And since I’m part of the 2% (both parents are righties), I’m entitled to an extra day off or something. I mean, I’m basically a living miracle. Sayonara, suckers.
*No matter how hard it gets, I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing those weird glove things. Girl’s got a reputation to uphold.

I’ve always had a fascination with the left handed. My mom is and with both my kids I thought they started out as lefty, but ended up being rightys. Some of my favorite basketball players are lefties and they just have such a unique abilities. I even taught myself to be a switch hitter and actually am a better hitter on that side than my right.
It’s definitely a talking point and came up all the time when I played sports. Most coaches would ask me to switch, because it was too challenging for them to teach me the “backward” way of doing things. Such is the lefty’s life, I suppose.
That’s weird because in the pros it is always a valuable thing to be a lefty either a baseball pitcher or batter or a basketball player that confuses others. Guess you coaches missed the boat on you.
That’s small-town sports for ya.
It wasn’t until high school that my coaches recognized what a secret weapon a lefty can be.
Couple that with my growth spurt stopping in 6th grade, and I was destined for intramurals from there on out!
