which one are you...
I have "cross dominance", generally called mixed-handedness. I do some things like a right handed person - write, cut, throw and brush my teeth etc. I do some things like a left handed person - play cards, count money, eat (using silverware), gymnastics (when I was young). It's not that I just favor my left hand to do these things, I cannot deal cards with my right hand and could not cut food with a knife in my right hand without looking like I have a physical disability.
I have had surgery on my left ankle, my left wrist, my left ovary, have ruptured my left eardrum and have had 2 lumps in my left breast - the right side of all of these things, nothing. Oddly, every headache I've ever had (and I've had plenty) has always been on the right side of my head, never the left. It's sometimes like I'm divided down the middle.
When I try new things, I don't know whether or not I'm doing the thing like a lefty would do it or like a righty would do it. I blame my poor handwriting and inability to cut a straight line on my mixed-handedness. It's always nice to not have to blame yourself for your shortcomings. I think I make jewelry for left-handed people but I'm not sure. I put a necklace on like a left handed person (open/close the clasp) so I try to do the opposite when making jewelry but I sometimes forget. I'm sorry to you people who buy my jewelry and feel like the clasp is on the wrong side, I really am.
What about you - righty, lefty or like me - somewhere in between?
