Day 136 : more electrical


The Black and Decker toaster oven has all the controls in a vertical column on the right side. In order to use the left hand to operate the controls, the left arm would have to cross in front of the body or one would have to step to the right and no longer be directly in front of the appliance.

Kelly: I had to ask my son about his video controls and if he noticed that they were right-handed biased. He said he just learned to play and didn’t think about whether it was more comfortable using one hand over the other.

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
