This is Bossy and she is currently in Seattle touching the farthest edge of her Excellent Road Trip. Beginning tomorrow Bossy will be moving back across the middle of the country toward home.
Bossy has been in Seattle for two days, and here’s a little known fact about Seattle: it rains a lot. But it doesn’t just rain, it’s drizzly rainy pouring sunny drizzly sunny raining sunny pouring. Bossy has never worked her sunglasses so hard, scraping them off and on her face as the weather swings wildly between beautiful and lufitueab.
In other news: Seattle is totally cute:
Last night Bossy had dinner with her Seattle posse at a place called The Pink Door. For the life of Bossy she couldn’t figure out the origins of the restaurant’s name:
The gathering was very dynamic. She was there and she was there. She was there and she was there and she was there too. Also she was there and she was there and she was there, and one last she. It was a she love fest. Plus one random Greek man makes he:
On the way home, Bossy had the opportunity to walk past the Mother Ship:
After a great
coma sleep, Bossy and her sister host went to Pike’s Place Farmer’s Market, where Bossy married the fish monger who called her honey and fed her crabmeat:
Bossy and her
sister host had a great time walking around the market scarfing samples and sampling scarves:
And then Bossy said goodbye to her
sister host and felt a flood of sadness that’s hard to pinpoint. Mostly Bossy can’t believe the generosity shown by everyone she’s met, and she can’t believe her luck.
When Bossy called home this afternoon to discuss these friendships forged and the abundance of kindness, suddenly she was shedding giant tears while gurgling uncontrollably until Bossy’s husband actually thought he was the victim of bad cell phone reception.
So. Bossy wants to thank you D.C. and Richmond and Atlanta and Orlando and Tallahassee and Baton Rouge and Dallas and Oklahoma and Scottsdale and San Diego and Laguna Beach and L.A. and San Francisco and Portland and Seattle for making the first half of this Excellent Road Trip so very dear.
Tomorrow: Boise Idaho. Now pass the tissues.
