Yes, that's right, I'm left-handed. Supposedly that makes me clumsy, accident-prone and right-brained. Considering that I have a big bruise on my foot from dropping an insulated coffee mug earlier this week, the clumsy and accident-prone part sounds right, although I can't positively attribute it to my being left-handed. The right-brain stuff sounds correct though, as writing is my preferred occupation (despite my being shoehorned into a left-brained project management job right now).
The world isn't particularly accommodating for lefties, but I've adapted some ambidextrous habits that serve me pretty well. For example, in elementary school I started out competing for the few pairs of left-handed scissors available before giving up and just learning to use right-handed scissors instead. That alone has probably saved me an enormous amount of inconvenience in my lifetime.
I embroider left-handed but crochet right-handed, because my great-aunt taught me crocheting and we both found it too complicated when she tried to teach me "backwards."
There's only one specialized kitchen tool for lefties that I'd like to have: a left-handed measuring cup. I always end up with the metric side facing me and it would be nice to be able to see the English measurements without awkwardly holding the measuring cup in my right hand.
I put my computer mouse on the left (which doesn't always reach very well, let me tell you!), but I use the buttons in the usual right-hand configuration. Several jobs ago, an IT person helpfully programmed my mouse buttons in reverse but I couldn't get used to it and I made her change them back.
I'm curious about how many of my fellow bloggers and blog readers are left-handed. Left-handers are a distinct minority among the population at large, but the whole right-brained thing could tip the balance a little more toward lefties among bloggers. Which are you?
