Trivia number 82

I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.

President James Garfield could write Latin with one hand and Greek with the other hand simultaneously.  The last one for today is: President George Washington didn’t have enough money to get to his own inauguration so he had to borrow $600 from his neighbor.

Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

 Good morning, James. I see that James Garfield was ambidextrous. I am too! I can screw a job up with either hand.

I can't even pat my head with one hand and rub my belly with the other, much less know Latin or Greek; I'm lucky if I can speak English.

Wow knowing how to write those is difficult, writing with each hand is difficult but doing both at the same time is just mind blowing lol
