Ambidextrous Let me kiss you with my left lip and my right open my right labium and the left. Let my left eye solve quadratic equations and my right eye parse Picasso. Let me sign the check upside down with my right hand rightside up with my left. Let me read traffic signs blindfolded. No, just kidding. Let me brake left-footed or right. Let me track two rabbits to the compost pile Let me aim left-eyed and shoot right-handed. Let me watch sunrise and offer tobacco smoke. Let me offer tobacco smoke at moonrise.
