Happy Lefthanders Day! I thought I’d celebrate this weekend with a few posts specific to left handers that I’ve had queued up for awhile. So, all you lefties out there, this weekend is for you! Whether you hook when you write (also called overwriting like President Obama, pictured below) or write from below the baseline in a more neutral hand position like previous US Presidents Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Yes! Five out of the last seven US Presidents were left-handed! Amazing.

How interesting this post was for me. I am not a
lefthander, however I found it interesting to learn
about a all the presidents that are.
I forwarded this Well Appointed Desk article to my
friend, who is also my pastor and lefthanded himself.
I didn’t know there was a, “Happy Lefthanders Day”
but now that i’m aware…i’ll run with it. I guess I can
Send him a dozen pens as a gift. I heard that the dry gel Ink pens are good for lefties.
Have a great weekend, Ana.
I plan to post a review of the new Zebra Sarasa Dry Gel which does dry very quickly. But I have very little issue with most gel pens at 0.5mm or finer as a left handed writer. Though sometimes, the red inks take a bit longer to dry. Weird, huh?
