It’s back. Bossy is of course talking about her Sunbeam Radiant Control Toaster, which died over the Thanksgiving holiday after a rigorous cleaning.
Or did it?
Enter Bossy’s friend Jim. Jim can fix anything, which includes cars, old radios, guitars, kid bicycles that have been run over by a certain someone’s Honda, and, apparently, vintage toasters.
But Bossy didn’t know her friend Jim was attempting to fix her beloved toaster, so while Bossy placed a personal ad for a new one, and incessantly bugged her readers to help decide which brand, Jim was busy toiling over the mechanics of the automatic carriage.
And when he was done, Jim cleaned the heating elements and polished the chrome and stuck it in a box on Bossy’s front porch, along with information about this website which proves Bossy’s vintage toaster obsession isn’t solitary.
Wait — this Favorite Thing isn’t about the Sunbeam Radiant Control Toaster!
No, today Bossy’s Favorite Thing is Jim.
All Bossy can say is thank gah she hasn’t been able to make even the smallest decision in a decade, and therefore hadn’t yet purchased a new toaster and was instead toasting things using her oven’s broiler.
