I was reading the knitting thread where people were saying how some things were difficult to do one is left handed. How many of you are lefthanded, and what inconveniences do you suffer because of it? I found it very hard to write left to right and misspelt words because my writing hand would cover the page when I wrote (instead of my hand leading, which would have been the way if I were right handed) Asian etiquette demands that finger food be eaten with the right hand. I always kept picking at stuff with my left and earning glares from people. I was a klutz at a lot of things. Right handed people explained, but there were things I could not get at all and ended up doing awkwardly.
