Find Your Fearless Sidekick

Find Your Fearless Sidekick.

I’m the kind of person who has always followed signs. I’m not talking about signs from the Universe. I’m talking about literal, physical signage. “Do Not Cross”, “Private”, “Use Other Sidewalk”, I take these things seriously and I follow them to the letter. I walk on designated paths, rarely deviating, wandering off, or (gasp) going…
