interesting

most people know that during a heart attack the left arm might hurt - but did you know that that this is the reason we wear our wedding rings on the left hand? apparently the romans figured that if your left arm hurt during a heart attack, then your left arm must be connected to your heart - hence the wedding ring on the arm that is connected to your heart... the things i learn in nursing school..

i came home and shared this juicy tid- bit with my jimmy, he promptly gave me a blank stare. so i am glad i am not the only one who found this information useful. you never know when these odd little facts will be useful. possibly one day this will be a million dollar trivia question.

you should also be glad that Jimmy is not the only one to give a blank stare when presented with such a fun factoid
