Hello!

I'm never bored...

Bonus Question:

Just for Fun:

Are you right or left handed ? I'm right handed. I was hopeless with my left hand until I hurt my right wrist 4 years ago, so I had to manage with the left (not easy to brush one's teeth with the "bad" hand). I also went to work and wrote on the blackboard with my left hand, the handwriting was awful of course but at least, I could write for my students. I remember one of them trying to write with his left hand but he couldn't, that made him realize how courageous I was, lol!


Today is:
National Filet Mignon Day Yum
Trail Mix Day
International Left Handers Day Happy day to whoever it may concern!
Taxicab Day Taxicab? I always thought taxi and cab were two different words meaning the same thing...
Eyeglasses Day Yeah! I have some!


Have a great day everyone!
