Hello ratburn!(",) Quite a funny discussion you came up here. I really don't mind which leg I put first when wearing a pants so, I gave a little thinking to recall how I put on my pants. I placed the right first because I use the left as my support. This is interesting because I am a left-handed person and most things that I do, I really use my left hand. When I put on my pants I have the left leg as my support that's why I wear pants with right leg first. Great day!(",)

it just came up in one of our discussions with my friends :) so since you're left handed, do you use your left hand when holding a spoon? just curious :) thanks for responding, lani0529!

i think i wear it left leg first too... probably this can be because most people are right handers n we feel it awkward or probably offbalance to put in our right leg in first...we prefer to stand upon our rite leg rather n let go the left leg inside first...

that's what i thought too. but i tried to observe myself and MAYBE i put on the right leg first. i don't know. it feels really weird. if you just saw me today, i was like, do i put on the right first? no that's not right. what about the left? no that doesn't feel right! nothing felt right. hahaha.

Yeah, I've never thought about this. I never really realized I always did the same thing. I aways start off putting my right leg in the pants. Maybe it's because I am right handed...I don't know! Odd! :)

are you sure that you always do the same thing? if hard to observe such thing. it becomes unnatural and you doubt yourself. haha. odd indeed! :)

I usually put my right leg in first, but I think it depends on you leggedness. Just like some poeple are left handed or righthanded the same thing applies with your legs. Think about when you start to walk in the morning. Do you begin walking with your left or right leg?

I've never thought about it, ratburn! I just put them on! =p Thinking back to this morning when I put on my blue jeans, I find that I put the right leg on first. This makes me different, eh? Yay, I'm different (oh wait that's normal for me). But I can't remember any time before this morning, since it's not something I normally think about. So what if I usually put them on left leg first and was just being strange this morning? Or what if I rotate each time? Or what if really there is some kind of magical dressing fairy that puts them on me in the first place, and it's all a false memory?

that was also my thoughts when i first heard about this. it's not something i think about. i was surprised of how sure my friend was about putting on the left leg first. today, i was conscious and observed how i did things, apparently, i put on the right leg first. BUT, it felt weird. i guess it's not something we think about and when we really think about it, there's something not right. one of the GREAT mysteries in life. haha. i agree with you, it's a false memory! haha.
