    Exactly what I was thinking!

    My ex was left-handed.

    My best friend is too. As was her dad. The nuns made her dad write with his right hand!

    I'm left handed but pretty close to being ambidextrous. I don't assign too much importance to whether someone is right or left handed but thought it was kind of interesting to see how many recent Presidents were left handed. Apparently, Reagan was left handed also, but forced to switch when he was young.

    I'm ambidextrous, which many people think is an advantage, but in reality, can be quite impractical. Like back in school during the gymnastics part of PE, I always had trouble finishing in the right position on the springboard when we had to jump over these things: (1: yes, I'm that old and 2: I don't remember what they're called)


    I can write with both hands, but I mainly write with my right hand, so I always considered myself right-handed or ambidextrous at most. But our wellness instructor at work had us take a test which shows which side you favor. Like when you step off the sidewalk to cross the street, with which foot do you start walking? Or when you ascend or descend stairs, with which foot do you start? Or on which leg do you lean when you stand with one leg bend? He told me I was really a lefty because in all three cases (during the physical test) I started with my left leg. It was a weird discovery for someone in their late thirties, at the time, LOL. Oh, but I have always operated my computer mouse with my left hand, automatically, so.......

    I am a proud southpaw as well. I heard that Einstein was, but I have no real proof.

    Imagine that; a scenario involving Trump that gives me an erection...the mind boggles.

    As soon as I saw the picture of this "box" it brought back a memory of vaulting over that thing in gym class. It's known as the Swedish Box but had to google to be sure. I remember how much fun I used to have in this class.

    I write with my left hand, and throw a ball and play tennis with my left hand. But bat right handed, golf right handed, throw a frisbee right handed, and kick a soccer ball with my right foot. I can shoot a basketball with either hand. I also use a mouse right handed, play a guitar right handed, and use scissors right handed. I wonder if playing the piano helped me be more ambidextrous. Most of the complicated parts of music are played with the right hand (melody) while rhythm is usually played with left.

    Isn't it called a vault? It's been a few decades since I last did gymnastics, so I might be way off.
    Be excellent to each other.

    I thought the vault was the springy thing.

    *edit, I looked it up, I'm thinking of the springboard.
