In Key West there is a practice called the “Local Discount” of 10% for “Locals”.   We somehow qualify and appreciate it.  Usually we are noticed as “Locals” and automatically receive it.  When we are not, I sometimes request it.  

A discount is certain amount or percentage deducted from the usual or posted price (a whole blog could be written on what is the actual price) of something.  

Discounts are given, for instance, to Senior citizens, active military members, students, veterans and members of various affinity groups.  

This gets me to what I’m driving at.  It is a fact that there are nearly 330,000,000 people in our country and an estimated 10% of us are left handed.  That makes 33,000,000 of us in this Lefty group. 

That makes us one of the largest affinity group in our country.  What’s more we are recognized as leaders, smart and creative and I for one hereby demand our rightful 10% Lefty discount!

    My daughter is the only lefty in my family of six. I find myself often watching her in amazement.

    When is our next Lefty Luncheon so we can discuss this in addition to other Lefty Rights? Perhaps we can create a Lefty Bill of Rights?

    Bats Left Throws Right . Can you imagine having the power as a switch hitter to bat left handed and almost put one out of Yankee Stadium ? Mick was a natural righty . But all that being said ...... Diane is a Southpaw and knows every discount known to woman kind . I would say we save close to 30 percent of our disposable income . No joke . If a discount can be wrangled Diane is your go to . Diane never pays full price for ANYTHING . It’s the old “ Nothing on the carcass goes to waste philosophy . Southern Minnesota farm girl . Me . I pay full price for everything . Cigars , motorcycles , whiskey . Diane has beaten more tickets in court than anybody alive . She intimidates the judge . And me .
