The middle finger's other uses
There are more things that the middle finger does than just flip someone off. I learned this when I sprained mine over the weekend. It was a gardening mishap. I was moving some daylilies to try and pull out the onion grass there when a big fat bumblebee came flying out. In my haste to escape the dangerous bee (I am very, very, very afraid of bees), I managed to sprain my left middle finger. Gripping doorknobs is not easy. Griping my fork to anchor my meat so I could cut it was paintul. I found that lifting some things - like my ipad - are impacted by the pain. Worst seems to be hooking my bra - I'm not sure what role exactly the middle finger plays in that, but it hurts to do it. Fortunately, it does not impede my knitting. And fortunately, or not, I can still flip someone off - with the other hand.
