Today, at the fitness center of Sun City Palm Desert, one woman said to her cohorts, “Why is my left side stronger than my right?”
I couldn’t resist, so I stepped in with a theory on this phenomenon. “There’s an explanation for that.”, I said. “Since your right hand has the skill, your left hand is used for carrying things. This makes your left hand and your left side stronger, since it does most of the work.”
I suppose I could have said, “I have a theory about that….”, instead of simply stating my explanation as if it were rooted in fact. On the other hand, three women at the gym seemed just a little bit happier after this exchange. So, no harm done.
