And I can't use those "liquid paper" white out sticks left handed - the stuff gets all bumpy and off track.

Well if you could paint the fingernails on your right hand with your right hand, I'd like to see it.

I'm left handed- thanks to my grandpa. I was the only one in my family of 3 sisters and one brother.
My son and daughter are both left handed which I think is cool- they are keeping the line alive!

They both bowl right handed tho; me too, but I bowl like well not well at all. My daughter bats left handed but pitches and throws right handed.

Now I'm keeping an eye on my grandson cuz I think he will be a lefty too!

patrice!

Isnt goofy footed, starting off with your right foot?

I write right handed, everything else left handed, except when I fire a weapon. Right handed for a M16 and left for a handgun, not sure how I figured that out.

yes, but that is typically how lefties do it, because you are steering with your left foot...at least thats how it works for me

My Dad's nickname was Lefty. I guess it was more macho than his real name - Floryan. Anyway, he could write with both hands because the nuns at his Catholic school beat him when he wrote with his left. They told him writing left handed was the work of the devil. (DQ, are you a lefty?) So he wrote right handed until he got out of school, then went back to left handed.

I write left handed, play Ice Hockey right handed, yet I golf left handed.

If the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body, and the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, then only left handed people are in their "right" minds

I'm pretty much left-handed for everything. For CQC, I've learned to be ambi-dextrous since it's easier for instructors to teach 'right-handed', then I just flip it over for myself. Shoot left-handed both pistol and rifle (left eye dominant). I will say though, when learning the M16 left-handed, shells ejecting to the right were really distracting.

SH,

I am pretty much like sweatpeas. My mom claims that when I was developing she knew I was growing up left handed so she started putting everything in my right hand.




Me too. I did bat left and throw the shot put left handed in HS though. Last year I broke my right wrist and tore the cartillage so now I do everything left handed. I'm just now beginning to use the right again.

I am left-dominant, but I write, bat, and play golf right-handed.

Spin Cycle here . . .

I'm a lefty. Things I do right-handed are shoot a gun, archery, field baseball(I bat left-handed), throw a frizbee, fish, use a calculator, and open jar lids. I'm sure there is more.

My maternal grandmother was left-handed, but no one else in the family is. My mother had a heck of a time teaching me how to tie my shoes because she is right-handed. She finally taught me by making two loops and crossing them. I had no idea I did it different until someone in high school saw me tying my shoes and loudly asked, "What are you doing?". That's when I asked my mom and she told me the story. I asked her once to teach me to crochet; I think she was horrified at the thought.

Lefty. Use scissors with right. Use mouse w/ right hand. Only one of my siblings. None of my children either. I wanted a lefty kid...but I'll take the perfect ones I have.

I'm a righty, but I've had occasions that forced me to go lefty.

I'm a righty, both my kids (one mine, one step) were/are lefties. My grandaughter who is 10 months old reaches with her left hand, and I'm hoping she is a leftie too because I think it's cool (even though I'm not)

My sister and I are both ambi-dextrous. I favor my right and she favors her left but we can both use either hand for just about anything.
