Being    a Left-Hander In a Right-Handed \\ arid Is Challenging By Erma Hornbeck Speaking of minority groups, my husband has just informed me that a little-noted band of oppressed people in this country is becoming quite militant—the Left-Handers of America. They are that brave little bunch of pilgrims who pledge allegiance backwards, take 20 minutes to screw in a lightbulb and always get seated al the left end of the dinner table or must register their elbows with the police as a deadly weapon. I have first-hand information on the subject of "lefties" because my husband and I have a mixed marriage. I am an Orthodox right-hander and he is a Latter-Day I/cftie. It hasn t been easy, but we've made it work.

I ordered "Things are getting better for It ti-handers and you know it Many firms are beginning to employ left-handers Marriages are flourishing between the hands Arid the other day a right-hander even took a left-hander to lunch!" Big deal!” sulked my husband. "FII bet the knife was to the right of the plate " » ;
