Even on a quiet day for the blog like yesterday, there were two Comments as diverse as the offer of a book about a zoo (which I am going to gratefully accept), and a poignant appeal for help with the aftermath of an injury. This continues the theme of ‘advice workshop’ which began last week when someone asked for job inteview tips. I was going to write something about this myself, and also I have some (more) observations on jet-lag, plus there’s a TYSIC summary that is incredibly long-overdue, and we need to win Eurovision, and there are some more career bits and pieces. So don’t let me forget all that stuff. Oh, also the Toblerones.
But as Misha is a very valued reader and leading organiser of all manner of things Watson-related, I am going to fast-track her enquiry, which runs as follows:
‘I’ve broken my hand and need advice on doing things one handed as I can’t use my right hand at all. This makes normal tasks, going to the loo, wearing a bra, brushing teeth etc, reallly rather hard.’
So I’m going to invite contributions from anyone with experience of, or authority on the subject of, functioning successfully with just one hand. I’d be particularly delighted to hear from anyone who only HAS one hand and could therefore be said to be the ultimate authority.
I’ve broken my arm a few times and I will simply say that it’s more possible than you think to write with your less-favoured hand. Can’t really help with wearing a bra. We all know how tricky they can be even with both your hands available. Eh, guys? Am I right?
