For The Love of Lists: Left, right!

I'm a lefty!  I can remember my kindergarten teacher trying very hard to make me "right" handed.  Of course I rebelled into becoming exactly what I was meant to be (a theme in my life)!

So hello Friday afternoon and hello to 10 little left handed facts.

I take my long arm photos left-handed :)

1.  Any group that includes Charlemagne, Rock Hudson, Paul McCartney, Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, Jack the Ripper and the Boston Strangler must be select, if not elite. --James De Kay

2.  Lefties tend to have a better memory for music then right-handers.

Which would explain why I listen to the words in songs and Cliff hears the music before the lyrics.

3.  Intuits believe that all left-handed people are potential sorcerers.

I'm thinking seriously about brewing up a glass of red wine some time soon.  4 o'clock on a Friday, I call that well deserved magic not sorcery.

4.  One of the few things that favors lefties are tollbooths.

umm I happen to think it just favors that we drive on the left side of the road here but whatever.

5.  The Incas believes that left-handedness was a sign of luck.

I'll take luck, never hurts.  Thanks Incas!

6.  The word "sinister" is almost verbatim the Latin word for left-handed.

Eh, poe-tay-to, poe-tat-oo, toe-may-toe, toe-mat-toe.

7.  If both parents are right-handed, a mere 2 percent of their children will be left-handed. If both parents are left-handed, there is a 50 percent change that their children will be.

Both my parents are right handed and I'm the only lefty kiddo of the bunch.

8.  There was even a time in Japan when mere left-handedness in a wife was sufficient ground for expelling her.

ha!  Had I lived in Japan in that time left-handedness would have been the least of the reasons for expelling me!

9.  We wear our wedding bands on the third finger of the left hand because of a custom that dates back to the early Egyptian belief that the vein of love ran directly from the heart to the third finger on the left hand.

I like those Egyptians, they are romantic and hairless.  Such a great combo.

10.  And this has nothing to do with handedness but I heard it the other day and it was an AH HA moment!  If a tear falls from the left eye first it means pain, from the right eye is happiness.  Now if only I could remember that right before the tears fall next time to confirm or deny.

I eat left handed : )

Are you a fellow left-hander in your right mind? 
Have a wonderful weekend!  Hopefully you can get into all kinds of expel worthy trouble, you know-- the really good kind!
Left handed love love love
