Is being left-handed a blessing or a curse? I don’t necessarily care either way, but I just want to know. Because I’ve met a lot of left-handers over the years (heck, one of my brothers is left-handed), and I’m not sure if I should be jealous of their advantages or glad I don’t have their obstacles. It’s a tough decision given the number of pros and cons. To show you just a few:
- Left-handed scholarships (yeah, it’s a thing).
- Separates you from a crowd.
- Often makes you harder to play sports against.
- for example, left-handers are often harder to pitch against in baseball. (And I just used baseball as an example…man, what is happening to me?)
- Obama is left-handed (just saying).
- Notebooks and three-ring binders weren’t made for left-handers…at all.
- Getting ink/lead all over the side of your hand as you write (think about it).
- In a car, the driver’s cupholder is always on the right (at least in America). The number-pad on a keyboard is always on the right. At a table, your drink is on your right.
- Every right-handed gadget ever.
So is being left-handed a blessing or a curse? Because it can’t be neither. If that were the case, why wouldn’t God make more left-handers, or make all people right-handed. Why are left-handers so rare? And then what about ambidextrous people? Is there really a bad side to that, or is it a blessing in every way? If so, is there some kind of hierarchy with regards to handedness? And if there is does it go ambidextrous, left-handed, then right-handed? Or maybe…wait, scratch that, is it possible to be no-handed (not ambidextrous)? ‘Cause that would just suck.
And…it’s way past the point I should be asleep. I’m going to have to cut this short, and I still want to learn the answer to my questions. So do me a favor and comment your answers below! (Oh, and if you began reading this post thinking that I’d answer my own questions…psyche! This is a The Random post, not a The Serious or even The New Adult post. You should know better than that.)
Until next time.
