Da Vinci, Jr.

I write lefthandedly. As any lefthander knows, writing from left to right is cumbersome and almost unnatural. So I find writing unimportant stuff backward, from right to left, to be relaxing. I used to think that, because of this, I probably was a reincarnation of Leonardo da Vinci. But that's when I was young and foolish. Now that I'm older and wiser, I just keep writing from right to left. And I frequent flea markets to find a typewriter which types right to left.

I wish you luck in locating the elusive typewriter.
I did notice that, when I had the occasion to visit the Equator, my dexterity changed from right hand to left hand upon stepping onto the southern hemisphere. And, when I stood directly upon the equator, I could move neither arm.
