Tomorrow my wife is having minor surgery on her right foot. Which, oddly enough, got me to thinking. Do we have a dominant foot?
My wife is left handed, so she is obviously in her right mind. Thus, I conclude, that her left hand is dominant and the right side of her brain is dominant. I think. I was, after all, an English major, not a biology major.
I know we have one eye that is dominant. In my case it’s my right eye. And i am right handed, so my mind inclines to the left (although my politics incline to the right). It’s all a mystery.
I can stand on my right leg longer than my left leg. What does that mean? I don’t know.
I have a cousin who, in our younger days, was ambidextrous, but I don’t know if he still is. I know that he is left handed. Does that mean anything?
My older daughter is left handed. She frustrates me because she sees the world through a prism, but I still love her. My younger daughter is right handed. She’s more logical than her sister. Does a person’s handiness determine their logicalness (look, I just made up a word)?
But, back to the original question. Do we have a dominant foot?
I guess so. According to this web site, we have a dominant foot. it even tells you how to determine it. “Stand with your feet straight ahead. Have a friend give you a gentle push from behind. Whichever foot you step forward with is your dominant foot.”
Mystery solved. Why didn’t I think to Google that question before?
