This morning I sliced another chunk of flesh off my right thumb. I was cutting bread, and trying to cut it straight. If I don't concentrate when I do this I end up with triangular slices that don't fit in the toaster.
I'm left-handed. The bread knife is right-handed.
They say we lefties are more likely, statistically, than our right-handed counterparts to become alcoholics. Or to be a MENSA-accredited genius, become president, or work for Apple.
They also say, on average, that we die nine years earlier than our right-handed counterparts.
I'll bet 50% of those deaths are bread knife related.
