The question most frequently asked of me while I sign my name

"So you're a lefty?"

Years ago, I stopped making smart ass remarks to this inane question.

"No, but my right hand has a small patch of gangrene" and "No. I like to rotate my hands like we rotate our tires, so I don't wear them out unevenly" were fun things to say but never truly appreciated. 

Instead, I simply answer the question now:

"Yes, I'm left handed."  

Then I wait for what the person will say next, hoping that it will be, "I'm sorry. That was an incredibly stupid question."

It's never happened.
