“And you feel comfortable driving on the wrong side of the road?” she asked.

“I’m not an idiot,” I said. “I can handle it.”

“Are you sure you don’t want to hire a driver to take us to the Castle?”

“Okay, but if you’re driving, why are you getting into the passenger side?” she asked.

“Fine. You drive.”
