    All my life I have been a lefty.

    I was just 18 month old when I fed myself with a spoon in my left hand. My parents, brother and sisters tried to put the spoon in my right hand but I threw it on the floor and smeared baby food on my fave. They discovered that I was a lefty when I ate baby food with the spoon in...

    Nothing Gives Me More Joy Than Coming Across Another Left-handed Person

    no matter who they are, it just makes them automatically that much cooler in my eyes! I get "picked on" by right-handed people who are just jealous. :P I do not do things backwards, I do it the correct way!

    When You Are Looked At Like You Can't Do Nothing Right Because You Are Left Handed.

    I just do not like how right handed ppl I encounter with always have something negative to say when I have to do something using my left hand and they had to go behind me. Removing a twist bow out my daughter's hair that I placed there may sounds silly but I have...

    To This Day And Time...

    I still set the table backwards - you understand, forks on the left? No one cares - it's just me and my cockatiel. He doesn't care - he comes down to eat whenever I put a meal on the table. I am the oddball in our family - and damn glad of it,too. It makes me unique, unsual...

    Proud Lefty Indeed!

    I'm very proud to be left handed! I'm actually the only lefty in my family (immediate and extended), which is kind of hard to believe but I think it makes me special :) I'm really probably more ambidextrous than a "true" left hander though. I only write and play...

    I Am A Proud Lefty.. With A Bad Hand Writing.

    As a proud lefty, the only thing that disappoints me is my bad writing. When i write something, and looked at it as a finished product, it felt somewhat dissatisfied of my work. I cant describe how i write but i write in a small manner though the word characters are mixed up. I...

    Different Perspective

    I think lefty's naturally have a different perspective on things....use both sides of your brain.  Of course writing with a pencil, your always wiping graphite from the side of your hand....small price to pay for brilliance!

    What's great is that the few lefties in our year at school all happened to be the smart ones, we all stuck by the fact that lefties were the smarter ones and smart enough to be different. I still am.
