I peruse the web, as is my wont, and I see a link about left-handedism.
Is that a word? Left-handedism?
Hey! I’m left handed, I think to myself.
I follow the link.
Let’s see. It says a study in Edinburgh found left handed people maybe more prone to PTSD.
Well, it’s been, I don’t know, 25 years since the Gulf War. I don’t know what to make of that study.
I file it away, a curiosity to ponder later.
Then I read the study also found left handed people are more prone to anger.
huh and huh again
I ponder this right now.
That hits me where I live. When I feel anger I feel it like a seizure, electric and visceral. I do my best to avoid it. But it’s always there, somewhere, ready.
I guess I’m wired for it.
