A Brilliant Hand Job

I grew up watching a lot of cartoons on Cartoon Network. Gone are the days where intelligent cartoons reigned supreme. Now only weird Japanese creatures that exist in a parallel world waiting to be nuked exist.

My friend was a great fan of Dexter’s Lab. He would often draw the characters out. He drew on papers, walls, bread slices, pigeons and anything else that he could lay his hands on. Although his drawings were as good as the original cartoon he wanted to challenge himself. He took on the inane challenge of attempting to draw Dexter with both of his hands.

After 3 years of practice he got the hang of it. He could finally draw Dexter with his left hand or his right hand. Sometimes he would use both hands. Sometimes he would use no hands, but that would only leave us with blank paper.

Nobody knew what to call him. Genius? Moron? A waste of skin?



Yet I knew what his talent was. I knew what my friend truly was.

My friend was clearly



Ambi-Dexter-ous.

Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

From a sage friend via PM..

I like to sweeten my tea with either cane sugar or honey, so I guess I'm ambidexstrose.

when my son was small, my brother told him he was Ambidextrous. Ryan asked me what that meant. i told it means your uncle Jeff can drop chit with both hands. the look on my brothers face was priceless,he is notorious for being clumsy.

The younger brother of school pard was ambidextrous. He had to write out "I will not talk in class" 100 times, so he did 50 with each hand at the same time.
