what i dislike most about being left-handed? every school day i would walk home with ink covering my hands. in drama i would sit on a chair with a right handed flap. grrrr. rulers were the wrong way round, so were exercise books. no wonder i would get confused.
i remember when i was around five, a teacher came into class and pulled me up to the blackboard she held a piece of chalk in her hand and asked me to take the chalk in my writing hand. i got confused because i wrote with my hand surely thats the answer. i had to think about it for a while then grabbed the chalk with my left hand. she looked at my teacher with a mmmmm knowing look then left the class. i felt like a rare species.
i began to adapt, scissors, i used with my right hand, golf lessons right handed. driving a left hand car is a dream. i wonder if this has made me confused, being a lefty in a righty world?
having tests completed recently the docs always ask which hand do i write with, and in all my reports/summaries there it is staring out at me, left-handed women.
90 per cent of the population are righties. the other 10 per cent has to make do.
never mind eh!
