    How do you get dressed, and no, in a hurry when her husband comes home isn’t the answer I’m looking for, lol
    I put underwear on right leg first, socks left foot first, pants right leg first boots left foot first shirt left arm first jackets left arm first.

    I’m fairly ambidextrous, left hand dominant but I can write right handed if necessary.
    I eat with fork or spoon in left hand cut meat with right hand.
    Throw a ball right handed, forced into that, left was natural, but couldn’t find lefty glove when I was little.
    I bat left, golf left, play hockey left handed, kick right foot, play guitar right handed.
    Shoot rifle and shotgun left handed, pistol right handed !
    I figure I’m just strange.
    So how do you do these things ?
    I always say when eating I don’t ha e to keep switching hands to cut meat and eat, I have two hands so I use the both in a complimentary way !

    I get dressed reluctantly, eat enthusiastically, play sports rarely and play guitar like a bear trying to sew.

    I never wanted to picture you in your underwear. :confused::lol:

    I do everything right handed, because I'm just boring old right handed. Nothing to see here.

    I never wear underwear...eat mostly sandwiches and I'm too old for sports at 71, although I do go for walks...I play mostly blues, semi- jazz, and occasional miscellaneous...I used to use a flat pick, then wanted to learn fingerstyle...now I suck at both.

    I'm left handed, and do pretty much every "handed" thing I do with my left. Never really paid attention to how I put my clothes on, though I think I tend to do the left first with jackets and such.

    One thing I do "right-handed" is play guitar, but I fail to understand what's so "handed" about it. We use both hands either way. I understand having a preference for one way or the other, but I don't see why picking with your right and fretting with your left means you're playing "right-handed". Both require a degree of strength, accuracy, speed, endurance. Neither side gets a break.

    I have never paid that much attention to how I get dressed. Otherwise, I am hopelessly righthanded.

    I get dressed daily, and sometimes twice daily, if have a gig.
    I eat well.
    I’m as athletic as tree sloth and I play guitar for fun or profit daily.
    Life’s good!

    I tend to do everything slowly now as at 62 I have had a job of some kind since age 12. I've done my share of running around, hurrying and so on. Now I only play guitar quickly, finger picking mostly, but I even do that by carefully learning and have run around most of my life.
    I live by my own clock now.

    I'm right handed, I just had surgery for dupytrens on my right hand. It's really hard to brush your teeth with your left hand, forget flossing. One really notices how right handed the world is designed. They rebandaged me the other day so I have a few more fingers to work with, so I can hold a pick, and play a bit of guitar. I have a new appreciation of lefties. Little things, like the pull starter on a lawnmower is on the right side, hard to use your left hand to start it...

    I can't imagine anyone giving a hoot how I do any of those things. I don't.

    My curiosity was whether you’re obsessive compulsive about how you do these types of things. Evidently I am. Either that or I’m just weird ! Take your pick .

    The most important thing I do in the morning is turn on the coffee pot.
