What does 10% of the population have in common?
What do these people have in common? 
Nietzsche, Mahatma Gandhi, Charlie Chaplin, Henry Ford, John McEnroe, Isaac Newton, Truman, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Macartney, Reagan, Ford, Bush, Obama, Clinton, Babe Ruth, Joan of Arc, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Bill Gates, Queen Victoria, Beethoven, Neil Armstrong, John Kennedy, Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Michelangelo, Ramses the Great, Mark Twain, Napoleon...
The same thing that the love of my life and I have in common. We're all lefties.

The other day Josh and I were at the thrift store (this amazing place in case you were wondering). In the midst of taking advantage of amazing deals and half price yellow tag items to boot, I ran across this.


Yes, it's A Left-Handed History of the World. I almost got it. You see, Josh and I are both left-handed. Ironically, we've had to learn how to sit next to each other at meals. You'd think we'd finally have it easy. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Two lefties falling in love? It's funny, but I have thought about what may come of this. With such a rich history of talented left-handers, I feel hopeful. Will all our children be lefties? *sigh* I hope so.

P.S. I didn't buy the book, but Josh bought me some gorgeous clothes! Sweet, sweet, provider. I love him.


  1. Joe has always wanted a left handed child. Unfortunately the first 3 are all righties. We'll see what number four is! :)

  2. My brother is left handed. Okay, that was random..but appropriate.

    I just wanted to say that your blog is adorable. I look forward to coming back!

  3. One of my best friends and her husband are both lefties. Their one daughter is a rightie... We'll see how that works out.

  4. I missed you lefties at SIL this summer! I got a hard time about being a lefty in one of the classes and couldn't find anyone else to help me out! =)

  5. mary... any idea what matthew is?

    stacy, thanks for stopping in. see you again!

    ranveig, bummer. i was hoping it was genetic and all would be left. i guess it doesn't quite work out that way.

    jess, how come i didn't know you had a blog? p.s. nice to see you at lunch the other day <3

  6. No, usually you can't tell for sure if they are a rightie or leftie until they hit anywhere from preschool to 1st grade. Lily is definitely a rightie, Jake still switches a little but favors right, Hannah seems to favor right but she is still little. :) We'll see! :)


how 'bout this...
