Default Something i noticed

So, I noticed a while back while smoking i tend to use my left hand to hold my hose even though I am right-handed.

Is that odd? Which hand do you use when you are smoking, the dominant or secondary?

That's pretty interesting - I use my dominant (right) hand to hold my hose. But on a related side note, I use my left hand when I'm using scissors which is kind of weird.

Hmmm. Well that is very unusual. For me anyway. Right hand is the smoke hand. Cigs and hose.

I hold it with my left hand (which is the secondary) because I need my other hand in doing other stuff

Agh, do the same, KillerB!

I'm actually Ambidextrous I guess. I used to play basketball in high school with my LEFT, even though I'm right-handed. Even when I play baseball, I throw the left ball with my hand and I also bat with my left, too.

Weiiirdddd

I guess it depends on what I'm doing. Right now I have a swisher tucked into my right hand but while I was reading i was smoking from my left. When it comes to hookahs I'm usually right handed. cigarettes I'm usually left handed but I do use my left hand. I'm right handed but I do use my left hand quite a bit actually.

Whichever hand is closest to the hookah (Short Hookah Hoses tend to force one to do that)

Ambidextrous so that does not matter have even held my hookah hose with my foot (Bit double jointed even in my advanced years)

(My Missus says it is a treat for her to watch me working on motor vehicle engines ECT for then I use my hands and feet ,normaly work barefoot, Job gets done in half the time.)

righty, but smoke left-handed too haha, I think its because I was originally left-handed but Mrs. Miller forced me to switch to right-handed so that I could be a more productive member of society.

Default Re: Something i noticed

i smoke w either hand, but more often than not my left. I'm a righty, however my left is somewhat close to being ambi....... i tend to think this was the result of my traditional lebanese grandfather never letting me use my left for anything (especially writing).
