About 10% of all people are left-handed. Being left-handed means that a person is naturally most comfortable using their ____________________ hand. For example, left-handers write using their left hand. Some famous lefties include 7 US ____________________, Benjamin ____________________, Buzz Aldrin, Mark Twain, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Babe Ruth .

Since most people are right-handed, many ____________________ are made for right-handed people. This can make everyday life difficult (and sometimes ____________________) for lefties. For example, most ____________________ are designed to be used with the right hand. If you are right-handed and try to use scissors with your left hand, you'll probably have a very hard time ____________________ anything with them. This is a type of ____________________ that lefties face every ____________________. Most lefties become quite ____________________ in using both of their hands because of years of practice using objects that were designed for right-handers.

Other common objects that are difficult for lefties to use are computer numeric ____________________, baseball ____________________, can openers, most ____________________ tools, modular school desks, three-ring ____________________, most string ____________________, and lightbulbs.
