Yesterday afternoon, my husband and I had an accident while working on a home improvement project, which resulted in a 5 hour visit to the Good Samaritan Hospital (San Jose) Emergency Room. We were lifting a big air filter in his workshop and it escaped our grasp. I came home from the ER with a bruised left hand and seven stiches in my little finger. I am ridiculously right-sided but even so, it is hard working with one hand. So far, the most difficult part of being unidextrous is washing on my right side and earning stabs of pain when I unthinkingly use my left hand. The wages of clumsiness.
