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.
