Happy Friday the 13th! Are you guys superstitious? If you live in Spain, it’s Tuesday the 13th that’s the unlucky day. Sorry if you are superstitious and didn’t know that, because now you have an extra day to be afraid of.

I live in Houston, where it’s pretty uncommon to get around without a car. Sometimes I forget to follow Bobby’s #1 rule.

Another good pedestrian tip, especially for walking in Houston, is to walk with purpose. There’s this bearded dude who walks around with a wooden staff–he’s the Montrose Wizard. I think he’s the protector of the realm. He definitely has a regal air about him.

So, how do you get around town? What do you throw at rude motorists? Does your city have pedestrian wizards, too? Tell me the stories of your streets.
