Bossy knows Davy Jones died, which most of you already know — especially those of you who are Unmarried to Bossy’s Unhusband.
Bossy also knows Davy Jones was the lead singer of The Monkees.
Bossy knows Davy Jones was the lead singer of The Monkees because every day in grade school, Bossy and her three girl friends would pretend they were the Monkees — except Bossy never got to be Davy Jones, because Bossy’s friend Lisa was the only one who could do the Davy Jones’ dance:
Pretending one was in The Monkees was akin to The Monkees themselves pretending they were The Beatles:
Recess after recess on the asphalt parking lot of her urban public school, Bossy assumed the role of her favorite Monkee, Mike Nesmith. Bossy was never sure Mike Nesmith’s primary purpose in the band, shy of sporting a wool hat and behaving as though he thought The Monkees were extremely Mickey Mouse, which suited Bossy just fine since it was an opinion shared by Bossy’s parents.
Bossy also knows that David Bowie was born Davy Jones but had to change his name because there already was a Davy Jones.
Just like Bossy knows that The Monkees had a reunion tour in the eighties, which Bossy and her then boyfriend attended, although they did so ironically.
But Bossy also knows that sitting there in the outdoor amphitheater watching The Monkees reunion, she decided that Peter Tork was actually quite sexy — which Bossy realizes has nothing to do with Mike Nesmith or Davy Jones.
And finally, Bossy knows Davy Jones was too young to go. We’re really sorry, Davy Jones. Bossy’s sure you were a very fine fella.
