I do cadences in my head (ex-Navy — I don’t remember what I did before I joined, although come to think of it we did marching in Boy Scouts, so who knows how long this has been going on) and then freak internally when I realize I’m counting on the wrong foot (left👈 is right👍 and right👉 is wrong👎). But only internally, because after almost 60 years I’m good at pretending to be a normal people, I am, I am. And I could have been walking next to you, and we would have just looked like two people walking, us, we would. And it would have been fine.

Unless you started counting on the right👉 foot, because that would just be WRONG🚫. 😉
