The World Of the Sinister

Yup, it is officially Left-Hander’s Day. For those of us afflicted, with our brains wired a little differently – the unsung minority, so prejudiced against by scissors and other utensils. not to mention generally awful handwriting. (once referred to as “a spider crawled across the page)

The world of the “sinister” – sinis being the word for left. So sinister not only means of malice, but also means of Left. As opposed to dexter – meaning of right. Etymology

Left handers were once considered to be bad juju. These days its generally consider to be better at certain types of thinking, particularly spatial reasoning.

So to all those people who tried to get me to switch hands, my handwriting never improved. but my typing is not bad !
