And then realized I had gotten in on the passenger side.
Hence, the strange look.
SO. How, exactly, does one coolly brush off this itty-bitty faux pas? I put my purse on, opened the door, and flung my purse onto the passenger seat, then shut the door and walked around to the driver's side. As if to say, "Ah yes! I always put my purse on the passenger seat before I get in!"
Smooth, Katie. Reeeeeeeeaaaaal smooth.
