Dear Madam,

The fact that u r left handed raises sinister possibilities - (pun intended...Lefthanded - Sinistral)...

Is ur mouse pad on the left or right hand side of ur computer? Do u have a specially designed mouse? Have u been discriminated against because of ur - sinistrality? Are u of above average intelligence? Are u awkward or gauche? How do u use normal scissors? Did u know that Amitabh Bachan and Albert Einstein were left handed??? And Julius Ceaser, and Alexander the Great and Napoleon Bonaparte?

Why would it have been ironic 4 u to have been named Dyer?

And finally do u know why a left handed boy who was training to be in a Roman Legion would be forced to use the gladius - short sword with the right?

I beg u to answer these urgent and most pressing of questions... typing with only your right hand.
