    I hope Gutmutter's daughter doesn't try it!

    *chuckle* I'm pretty sure she slept on her flight back here, but she was just a passenger - yuk, yuk.
    Count your blessings!

    Now that was interesting and funny! Glad to hear your daughter doesn't sleep like an albatrose when she flys. We know what happened to them.

    Did you know that more people have been killed by pencil sharpeners than sharks? I'm thinking the pencil sharpeners are flying in mid-air when they committ murder?

    Did you know that all pens and pencils that have writing on them are printed to cater to the right handed people?

    I think all lefties should unite and march onto Washington.

    Finally! There was something posted here that I actually knew! I only knew it because my husband is left-handed. Coffee mugs work the same way - most of the have the design so that when you hold the mug in your right hand, you see the design. But when you hold it in your left hand, you don't. My husband has a special "left-handed" mug - when he holds it in his left hand, he can see the duck. There's also left-handed rulers and left-handed scissors.

    It's a tough world for us lefties.


    Did you know that left-handed people think with the right sides of their brains?

    Did you know: According to the American Pasta Report, 40 percent of respondents say spaghetti is their personal favorite, followed by lasagne (12%), macaroni and cheese (6%), fettuccine (6%), linguine (3%), elbows (3%), pasta salad (3%), and angel hair (2%).

    I happen to like bow ties, rigattoni and shells. They're not even mentioned
