Yes, I assumed Stephen was joking and in fact thought he was quite witty.
However, particularly when
you're talking to left-handed folks, I think this is likely
to cause a certain amount of confusion and possibly consternation.
Charity does not seem to be joking, however, so I'll just say I'm sorry if
I caused confusion, let alone consternation--in context I would have
thought it was pretty clear what "lefty" meant. Was it truly not clear?
That astonishes me.
Anyway, sorry. I'm right-handed but have a number of sinister relations,
and I'll be extra-nice to them over the holidays to make up for it.
