Which glove do you put on first?

Asked by josie (28690points) July 7th, 2010

Somebody asked which pant leg I put on first. In my case right. But on reflection, I realized that I put on the left glove first. Interesting. Wonder why not right, like the pants? How about you?

Normally, the one I find first. They have some trouble staying in the same place.

I put on both the right leg and hand first.

Left one, but then it’s left leg, left shoe too, and I’m right handed. But I agree with @papayalily too. My pants are really the only thing always found together, if found. I shouldn’t have to exercise with all the searching I do everyday.

Left glove
I am ambidextrous.

I write as badly with one hand as I do with the other!

Right one.

If they are together, whichever one that is picked up 1st. If they are in separate coat pockets, I’m pretty sure the left one 1st.

No glove, no love.

Just one glove for me – and I don’t mean the Michael Jackson look.

If it’s really important: the left – which means I’m a righty, I guess. Just as if you have the belt buckle on the left side, it usually means you’re right-handed (according to Sherlock Holmes, anyway.

Left shoe, left pant leg, left glove. I put on my clothes from the left. I even play guitar left. I eat with my left. I brush my hair with my left hand. I catch with my left hand when I play baseball, and I’m a better batter left. I was a left striker on my association football team in high school.

But I write with my right hand.

Go figure.

@aprilsimnel You have a bit of (very healthy indeed) ambidexterity.

aprilsimnel's avatar

My maternal grandfather was truly ambidextrous, as he was equally adept at tasks with both hands. I think I’m more of something called mixed-handedness or cross dominance.

Test yourself here!

@aprilsimnel Nice link. I’m a left handed -0.2. I guess we adapt.

Oh, and I put on any glove I pick up first.

@aprilsimnel – Fun link! I’m left handed -0.3, which doesn’t surprise me.

I typically put on my left glove first and have no idea why!
