I am a lefty. My brother and one sister are also left-handed. So is my Dad. Mom & other sister are right-handed. Oh, the dinner seating was so much fun.
I cut with my right hand. My poor Grandmother believed being left-handed was a sign of the devil. I got so much holy water sprinkled on me, I am set for life.
I am creative, and notice that I sometimes process information in a different manner, as opposed to the right-handed people I know.
I’m a righty, but I shoot pool with my left more than likely since my dad who was a lefty taught me to shoot pool did so the way he did. I can write with both hands though it its clearly more ledgible with my right hand. I can also write with the toes on my right foot. *L* The things you can find out when your bored and have too much time on your hands after surgery. I can also pick up things with the toes on my right foot. My nephew saw me pick up a tennis ball and he had to figure out how to do pick up the ball with his toes as well.
I’m strange and I know it. [:D]
I am right handed and I am an artist …
My husband is left handed and he’s a musician …
I’m right handed,and referring to an early post from 2004 of Sundancer’s my wife is a professional artist who worked for Hallmark for many years…and is RIGHT handed…my daughter is following in her footsteps too, and is right handed!
on a similar note,
both Barack and Mac are Left Handed, so we are assured of a win this fall no matter what[;)]
I’ve also noticed, re baseball, that you see many more left-handed batters than you used to. We go to the Lexington Legends games in the summer and many batters, on either team, bat left-handed.
Ort, I too wonder what the percentage of lefties has become. Now that we’re rarely discouraged to switch, I would guess it’s risen considerably.
I was working on a software project for a client and would attend daily meetings. I noticed almost immediately that of the five of us who were mandatorily attending, three of us were lefthanded. We often had ‘guests’, and there seemed to be a high number of lefties there as well. Are we just drawn to the geeky occupations?
It’s utterly amazing how many of us lefties there are out here. Before now,I would have guessed that we made up 10% or so of the population; now I’m wondering just what that percentage is.

P. S. My late friend Melissa stayed in a hotel in Kenya which was built directly on the Equator. She noted that, even just a hair off that line, the water ran clockwise or counterclockwise down the drain, even if it was in two rooms next to each other. "I guess I’ll never see water run straight down without being deflected one way or the other," she sighed. (Like me, it was a hypothesis dating from childhood that such could occur. Wrong-o.)
P. P. S. I could tell a little white lie and say that my friends D.J. Hack and his wife Clara, who live in Brasil, brought some Sao Paulo water when they came to visit. We poured it in the sink to see which way it would drain, and it hesitated for a moment (as if to get its bearings), then drained out in the proper Northern Hemispheric manner. "When in Rome,do as the Romans do," we can suppose.
which brings me to this:
the difference between a bull and an orchestra:
on a bull, the horns lead the bull in the front, and ass is in the back. Where in an orchestra the horns are in the back and the ass is leading up front.
Except for Sergiu Celibidache, Sir Thomas Beecham, and – most of the time – Pablo Casals.

We can assume you are female. Males tend to be clumsy at that with either hand.

I did the crossing the hands thing and my left index finger was on top. I tried it the other way and it really felt weird. What’s even more weird is the fact that I have two children, a boy and a girl and both are right handed. I always heard they were going to come out with a left-handed Whopper at Burger King, but how would that be any different that what they have now? How can a burger be left-handed or right-handed? I guess I’m not that creative or I would have figured that out by now. LOL
I agree with Linus. I write and eat left handed, but I bat right handed and use right handed scissors. I have left handed scissors, but I hardly use them anymore because they just feel weird. My teacher in 2nd grade had a hard time teaching me cursive so I pretty much tought myself and always got A’s in handwriting and spelling so I must have done something right. What I hate is wire notebooks and never being able to write in them without the wire right in your hand. I like the notebooks with the wire in the top or the wireless. I think the worst thing being left-handed is the ink stains you get on your left pinky from dragging your finger through everything you write. I do a lot of things with my right hand though so I think you just adapt to what the world offers you. My husband is left-handed also but thinks he would have been right handed had his right arm not been disabled at birth. My mom has told me at different times that her mom made her do everything right handed when she was little and she thinks that she would have been left handed. My brother is right handed but plays most sports left handed. We used to share a glove when it came to playing baseball so who knows.
I am right-handed,as are all my relatives on father’s side, as far back as anyone recalls.
An interesting thing to do, especially in large group…
Ask people (you can do it now) to fold their hands, interlocking their fingers, as tho they are praying.
Which index finger is on top? MOST of the time, it is the right index,regardless of being r/l handed.
Ask them to switch so the opposite index finger is on top. It will feel funny/strange.
(We did this in a workshop for foster parents.)
Yes, ScoreReader, I get it. Nice use of self-deprecating humor, you big goof. [;)]
