1. Always expect the unexpected.
  2. Keep your camera/phone handy while walking to work.
  3. Have a pair of flip flops in your computer bag just in case barefoot gets squeemish fast.
  4. And never trust a realtor who tells you that Roosters are nice neighbors.  (They’re loud.  And needy.  They’re the first to arrive at your Block BBQ, and the last to leave.  And can’t parallel park for shit)
