Wasps are wopses in Warwickshire, I think Shakespeare used the same word.

I seem to remember my father using the same word, and he was from North London.

I'm familiar with that myself. I wonder if it's more a slangy play on the word, swapping the s and p, than an actual dialect name? Interesting.

Hmm, sandwiches... butty, sarnie, piece - any other words out there? Not for packed or picnic lunch, just for a sandwich on its own?

I think in boxing it's called being a southpaw? It's strange how being left-handed has been so looked down on over the years, to the extent of trying to force naturally left-handed children to use their right hands to write at school, which must have disadvantaged them. About 12% of the population is left-handed; a minority but not an insignificant one.

I'm right-handed for writing, but can only use scissors with my left and struggle to find sewing scissors with a left-handed handle shape; I can sew with both and wield a paintbrush with both - very handy when decorating.

My dad was born is 1933 and was left handed until he started school at which point he was beaten every time he picked up a pencil in his left hand. His younger brother was left handed too, but by the time he started school about 10 years after my dad, being left handed was more accepted and he was allowed to continue with his left hand.

That's so sad, poor little lad. It must have been miserable for him. I bet he was not pleased when he found out his younger brother was allowed to use his left hand!
