I'm left handed, don't care about proper silverware etiquette but I always eat with my left hand unless it's steak (beef or chicken fried doesn't matter) then I shovel that in with my right hand. I started out playing left handed then when I was 12. We had an in-land hurricane and it leveled 100s of acres of our corn and our neighbors corn crop. We had to pick as much as we could by hand because a combine wouldn't pick it up. In doing so a slashed my right hand ring finger down to the bone and could no longer comfortably fret with that finger again. So I flipped the guitar over and learned right handed. I should have started that way to begin with.
