Happy Left-Hander's Day

Hey,

Happy lefty day:

August 13 is International Left-Handers Day | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News

I remember a high school teacher (who was left-handed) said if you are a lefty, when you write either you are a "pusher" or "hooker". That is the way you write, of course . His words, not mine.

I am a lefty in some things, but a righty in others.

You just can't trust a guy who won't pick a side.

I think you're not being even handed about this.

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

Mr B is a lefty all the way.

I am a natural lefty, but...
I could switch hit at softball to intentionally confuse the outfielders LOL and played golf right handed all the time. I played all other sports lefty.
When I had my hands operated on for carpal tunnel, I forced myself to learn to write with my right hand until the left hand was fully recovered.
I continue to switch back and forth on all types of manual tasks to avoid reinjuring my hands.
I switch hit when playing virtual ping-pong on my PS3.

Of course us leftys are in our right mind!
I never really learned to use my right hand for sports, as I was a rider, which didn't require one or the other. I think the very short time I played basketball I shot right-handed. Maybe that's why I was really bad at it. Never played any other sports.

I consider myself a lefty as I'm left-handed for writing, handling a fork/spoon for eating, using a mouse. Yet for some things, I'm right handed like throwing a ball, handling hand and power tools.

I also had to change hands for sometime when I was in college and fractured my left pinky. So, I had to take notes with my right hand until the pinky recovered.

Writing on a chalkboard (remember those things? haha), I could use either my right or left hand.
