    I, too, am a southpaw. I have heard that half of all left handed people are geniuses. It must be Horatio Plot, since I do not fit the bill.

    It's funny. I'm left handed, but I surf regular foot.

      Odd you mention that. I do everything left-handed/footed. Except bat. I bowl left-arm over (slow left-arm orthodox) but I bat right-handed. Oddly, David Gower was left-handed but batted right-handed.
      Not that I'm comparing myself to David Gower you understand. Although I did once play against him at school. He played for King's, Canterbury and scored 103, a glimpse of things to come.

        You had me fooled. I thought you were talking baseball, and it was some Yankee team that I don't care about.

    I'm right-handed. But in honor of the day I just peeled 2 eggs ambidextrously.

      Good for you paradigmsearch.
      By way of a thank you I tried to do the same right-handed with an Avocado. But I failed miserably.

    You all know what they say about us southpaws, right?
    Only left-handed people are in their right minds.
    They also say we're sinister.
    I think they're just jealous.
    smile

    To celebrate this occasion, I'm running through the house with my special left-handed scissors. I am not a danger to myself or others, as left-handed scissors don't cut for sh#t.

    Not left handed, but supporting you people by typing with my left hand.
    Do you have any idea how long it took me to type that sentence? lol

    1. KMI Rebel Yell profile image61
      KMI Rebel Yellposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Three minutes? That's how long it would take me with both hands.

      1. Hollie Thomas profile image61
        Hollie Thomasposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        I suspect it was longer than three minutes. Didn't time it but felt like an age. Still typing with left hand, apparently it has taken me twenty six minutes to respond. lol

    I write with my left hand
        I bat left handed when hitting in baseball
        I throw left handed when pitching in softball
        I shoot left handed when playing ice hockey
        I kick with my left foot when playing football or soccer
        I work at a computer with the mouse on the left side of the keyboard
        I eat my food with the fork in my left hand
        I drink my beverages from the left side of my plate
        I even prefer to use the left entrance of the man cave
        I have a stronger left eye and use the right side of my mind smile

    I once broke my left wrist in college and was forced to take all my classes and exams with my right hand...
