What? We get to choose? How wonderful.
But seriously, your hand/side preference may also play a factor. Say you're going down a straight hallway with a door in front of you. If you're right handed, you probably want to hug the right side of the wall. And you will probably want to slice the left side of the room first before the right. This is especially true for weaver folks.
But these are ideal conditions. Ultimately, it's like what Rich says, "Take it as it come." Or better yet, do what pete80 says. Bring a couple of trained friends over and clear it together.
By the way, am I missing something, or is there a reason why people are asking about slicing the pie all of a sudden?
