Maybe I Can Remember to Start Noticing This

The fingernails grow faster on the hand you favor. If you are right-handed, your right fingernails will grow faster, and vice versa. The middle fingernail grows faster than any other nail.

Kind of kin to navel gazing.
Do you have any lefties in the family?
My brother, one niece and Gorilla Boy all lefties. All technically, mathematically and artisitically talented all at the same time.

Yeah, that brain dominance and handedness thing. Most of us are right-handed. Very few wrong-handed ones. I just like to say that.

Getting Gorilla Boy left handed themed tshirts has always been an option - "I'm left-handed and I'm the only one here in my right mind."
When he broke his ankle, had surgery and had to stay overnight in the hospital he got a tshirt to wear home, the famous "I do all my own stunts", then I got him one "Going Nowhere. For the next 8 weeks!"
The twins got "I the Evil Twin" - each of them.
(I'm avoiding holiday chores.....)

Make that -
I am the Evil Twin.

Gorilla Boy got 'Aren't you glad I'm not a twin.' (Was a real possibility at the time.)

I like those t-shirts! Good ones!

I'm also avoiding Christmas chores. Maybe I'll be sorry later but right now not so much.

Go read Ms Moon's post today. That'll give you many laughs and make you smile, too.

Yes that's true. I am left handed and my finger nails always grow faster and longer on that hand.

I couldn't remember the name of Ms. Moon's blog so I cruised the listings and found Holy F**k and thought THIS must be it! It was. I have about 20 more minutes until I can shuffle The Engineer out of the house so this is a good thing.
