 LEFTIES  -- GOOD OR EVIL? WEIRD OR CREATIVE?
 Yes, I admit it, I'm left-handed. When I was a kid, I looked up the word sinister, which comes from the French "sinistre" or LEFT-HANDED! That's right, the definition of sinister in French isn't evil, it's left-handed! In school, left-handers dealt with modern desks created for right-handed students. We were taught to bat rightie, golf rightie and play tennis rightie. Wasn't being leftie ever going to be good? Not according to myth. Did you know?
1. In India and Indonesia, eating with the left hand is considered impolite.
 2. Chinese characters prove extremely difficult to write with the left hand. 
3.Getting out of bed with the left foot first means that you will have a bad day and be bad tempered . i.e. getting out of bed the wrong side. 
4. An itchy right palm means that you will receive money. An itchy left palm means you will have to give money.

Getting out of bed with the left foot first means that you will have a bad day and be bad tempered . i.e. getting out of bed the wrong side. - See more at: http://www.anythinglefthanded.co.uk/lh-info/myths.html#sthash.z7rBRRdb.dpuf

IF I LOVED YOU
Does love always mean total truth? Successfully shunning the limelight was one way for Megan Davis to keep her family secret. The press intruded on her life when her twin brother, Mark, became the star quarterback for the Delaware Demons. Disrespectful of tabloid superstars, financial advisor, Meg, was shocked when she was tapped to launch a celebrity division in the prestigious investment firm, Dillon & Weed. The biggest surprise: the charisma of her first client.             Gorgeous, magnetic movie star, Chaz Duncan, wary of women who wanted to bask in his fame or sell his secrets to the media, valued privacy above all else. Would attractive Megan Davis, his new financial advisor charm the truth from him or would he continue his high profile but lonely existence to keep his secret safe? Jealousy, deceit and scandal threaten two careers and the quest for true love and trust in this roller-coaster-ride contemporary romance.    
UNDER THE MIDNIGHT MOON

Can attending a wedding and a funeral on the same day change your life? Mindy Winslow’s life was altered forever when she met gorgeous lawyer, Drew Armstrong, and found out about her inheritance from her mentor, Lou. Embraced by the townsfolk at the wedding of her college roommate, Mindy sought to make her goal a reality in tiny Pine Grove, New York. But the exposure of a promise made then broken secretly, destroyed her dream. Will she be forced to face “I told you so” from her father or will love find a way to resurrect hope from the ashes?
A few more who are left-handed: Harry Truman, Bill Clinton, Diane Keaton, Matthew Broderick, Greta Garbo, H.G. Wells, Betty Grable, Cary Grant, Peter Graves, Richard Dreyfuss, Robert DeNiro, Peter Fonda, to name a few.

"If the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, then only left-handed people are in their right minds!'

My sis is a lefty:)

Sinister Jean. Never would have guessed.

I took archery lessons a few years ago. I'm right-handed, but lead with my left eye, which means I had to shoot with a left-handed arrow. Amazingly, I learned to hit the target, but lining up the arrow was a challenge every time. All thumbs, and they gave me a weapon!

As for the guesses, no clue, but I think I've heard Jerry Seinfeld was a lefty.

Do I win?

M.V.Freeman said...

LOL, we lefties always get the bad schtick. My dad used to have his hand tied behind his back so he was forced to write right handed.

1. Herbert Hoover
2. Lewis Carroll
3. Joaquin Phoenix
4. Bette Midler
5. Jay Leno

My guesses... :D

My husband of almost 25 years is a lefty and I have to admit, it still looks weird. I made two of my main characters left-handed. My guess is all of them are lefties, especially the comedians. I saw a statistic that 75% of all working comedians are left-handed and I believe it. All of the most recent Presidents have been lefties. Just proving we need to use all of our brains to be creative. But, it still looks weird to me and doesn't stop the fact that my husband has run through the cord on his circular saw twice now.
Thanks for some good info!
