I'm right handed, but my wife, Kathy, is a lefty, although she wasn't born
that way.  Similar to Frankie's story, a series of unfortunate right hand
accidents at a young age forced her into left handed dominance.  Not
surprisingly, she's pretty close to ambidextrous.

I'm not a lefty, though at one point I broke my arm
and was in a cast for several months, and had to work
a rod puppet left handed. Since I had no choice, I was
able to get used to it, almost as well as my right. I
of course switched back to my right hand eventually,
though a year later, when I picked up that same
puppet, I naturally put my left hand inside first.
