So I can certainly relate to this graph which I stumbled across on Digg but, for me, the most frequent response I hear is:
“oh, so you’re a leftie/left-handed, then?”
To which I usually reply something like:
“There’s no getting past you, is there?” or “only on Tuesdays and Thursdays” or something equally ridiculous.
I’ve never considered myself a fully-fledged leftie, though. I write with my left hand, am a left handed sportsman (except when I try and pick a fight because the game didn’t go my way) but I’ve always used scissors in my right hand and a computer mouse.
Of course, this doesn’t make me ambidextrous – just a bit mixed-up and awkward, I guess. As my music-come-cricket teacher used to describe me, “right handed musician, left handed bat".
I wasn’t much use at either though. Perhaps I should have swapped around!!
