*tries to chop wood with non dominant hand and child around* Oh no, me baby dead


I play chess with my left hand


I was once trying to teach a left handed kid to play some guitar chords. He had a right handed guitar and was determined to learn to play it upside down, so I learned some basic chords upside down and taught him that way. That’s been over 30 years ago and I still can somewhat play basic guitar upside down. It does give me a reminder to have patience with people learning something I’m already good at.


This is a great tip. I’ve used sometimes to show other “trainers” to be patient with absolute beginners of IT skills. Do it now, put the mouse on the other side for 10 minutes 😉
