Happy Left Handers Day!

August 13th is Left Handers Day, a special day to give a leftie some love.You know, lefties are faced with challenges at every turn. Here are just a few:

Their drinks and silverware, for instance, are awkwardly criss-crossed.

They bump elbows at the table, especially when they cut their food.

Desks are often wrong-sided.

Microwave controls are a reach.

Scissors? Forget about it.

Angled spatulas face the wrong way.

Ink pens smudge as words are written.

Guitars and other instruments are often taught by right-handed teachers.

Driving a stick-shift car has its extra challenges. In fact, cars are designed with righties in mind.

Famous lefties include Ben Franklin, Angelina Jolie, Ted Williams, Phil Mickelson, and, of course, President Obama.

So, show a leftie some love today. It's the right thing to do.
