Lefty or righty
« on: August 13, 2008, 05:59:56 PM »
This one's easy. No opninions, just fact.
Are you left handed or right handed.
I'm ambidextrous, but the left hand is dominate.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

I would if I played tennis lefty. I can hit a pretty mean forehand lefty, but have zero serve, and can't volley or hit a backhand. Well, I can barely hit a backhand lefty, or with two hands.
Bottom line, if it requires finesse, or dexterity, it's done lefty, but if it requires strength it's done righty. But I can do many things with either hand.
I used to be the tetherball champ way back in grade school because I could beat anybody with either hand.  :whistling:

I wish I was a lefty, but I am a righty, I try to practice lefty for fun sometimes.  I actually beat one of the bad kids on my high school team playing lefty 6-2 I think.

Then ask him if he ever plays the victim card :crying: because golf courses are right-handed.
