Kinda in the middle.

I am right-handed, but after I broke my neck I became left-handed for about a year. Strange experience, very cool

When I first picked up a pencil to write in school, I used my left hand. It was corrected by the teacher. I do some stuff with my left hand like open soda cans, open door knows, that sort of thing but I play guitar right handed so I voted right hand.

I’m weird. I chose left handed, but I write and eat with my left hand. For everything else I never know which hand I’ll use. Didn’t chose ambidextrous because I can’t write with my right.

I am right-handed.

My sister lied to me, when I was younger; she told me was left-handed (but also a bit ambidextrous), but she isn’t. I didn’t notice at the time. I realized this, when I was in psychosis. Who lies about that?

There are quite a few people I’ve met who have claimed to be ambidextrous. Maybe it’s just because of the novelty of the use of the word ambidextrous for them. I learned that word from Dungeons & Dragons, along with the word dexterity, fortitude, and a bunch of other words that nerds like me use in hiding.
