I can just barely feed myself with my left hand.

I can eat left handed due to 3 months of the right arm being in a cast.

Now I wonder how many left handed people use the left foot to say kick a ball??

Dunno, but I'm distinctly right footed, too.

Right handed and left footed - no need of rudder when swimming.

Left handed, left-eyed, right-brained, left footed, and I ruined my left A. tendon playing soccer.

HOWEVER, I use right-handed scissors... a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of left-brainers.

Almost completely left handed, except for cutting with a scissors. Can only do that with the right hand. Come to think of it, I also use my mouse with my right hand.


Piffka- Scissors?- do I see a pattern emerging?

Hey! Me too. I was startled when I read that, with my right hand over the mouse.

I think that the scissors thing is, for me at least, discretion being the better part of valor. For years there never were any left-handed scissors. If I wanted to cut something, I had to darn well learn how to use 'em. About the mouse I have no clue!

Do you know how to tell if you are left or right eye dominant?
You pick an object at least 15 feet away. With both eyes open create a little narrow box with your fingers. Then close first one, then the other eye. The eye that is dominant will maintain the view of the object within the finger box.

I'm right handed, but I thank God each and every day that I have two hands.

We own left-handed scissors, for the other 2 of them.

Oh. I play golf (not that well, but oh well) right-handed. Apparently there is something about the leading hand being <whatever it is> good for this. I do use a left-handed mitt.

I am right-handed but my Dad was left handed. Back in the 'old days' they forced kids to be right-handed. My father's left hand was actually tied behind his back in school and he was forced to write with his right hand. As a result, his handwriting was awful. As an adult, he continued writing with the right hand, but he played golf left handed.

Can you imagine the stir it would cause if they tried to make kids switch today?

Everyone that I can think of in my family is right-handed, but my son can naturally switch between right and left hand for any sport. His coaches love him to pieces..... Rolling Eyes

That's his plan, bandylu! (Never mind the fact that his Dad and I have convinced the child that scholarships are the way to go! God, please.....)

Sounds like you have him headed in the right direction. I'll keep my fingers crossed, too.

I am the odd-ball in my family. My husband and both kids are left-handed, but my husband is a right-handed golfer, batter, catcher, etc., as is my son. Somewhat ambidextrous. My daughter is a dedicated lefty. She can use her right hand about as well as I can use my left - not. We were rather surprised that both of the kids turned out to be left-handed.
