The Consequences of Right-Handedness

My brother wears his shirts untucked. He likes the button-down short-sleeved shirts with a pocket over his heart. Those kind of shirts have flaps at the bottom, the part that should be tucked in. But he doesn’t. I think those are called tails, the parts that hang below the bottom button, but maybe that’s just the backside. I’m not sure what the frontside ones should be called. It’s not the opposite of a tail, if there is such a thing, because they are the same things, only in front. Any way, the tails in front on the right side are torn, cut by the twist-top bottle caps of his favorite beer. He uses the end of his shirt when he twists the tops off so he doesn’t cut his hand. He’s right-handed, after all.
