Bossy’s dream took place within the five-minute interval of Bossy’s snooze alarm because Bossy has a complicated relationship with sleep where complicated equals she doesn’t get any.
In the dream, Bossy was staying in a house that belonged to a faceless friend of a faceless friend, and Bossy had just descended a long staircase in search of a legal pad. That’s when she spied her:
She’s Caroline Kennedy, and in Bossy’s dream Caroline was leaning on a settee placing a bandage on her big toe which she then shoved back into a black flat, and the reason Bossy knows it was a settee and not a couch is because, hello? Caroline. Kennedy.
And in the dream Bossy was thinking how cool it was that she knew Caroline Kennedy and that Caroline Kennedy knew her, even if Bossy only saw her leaning on settees belonging to faceless friends of faceless friends.
As Bossy stood there she wondered if she could ask Caroline Kennedy to become her Facebook friend, but then Bossy thought probably not, because that would expose all of the famous friends and family Caroline no doubt had on her Facebook page, like John F. Kennedy, Jr.
You see, in Bossy’s dream, John F. Kennedy, Jr. was still alive because Bossy has a complicated relationship with death, where complicated equals she never remembers when someone died.

Asthmagirl doesn’t sleep much either. But she hasn’t yet had the “Caroline Kennedy/Settee” dream yet during her 5 minutes of sleep. Lucky Bossy!
Little Miss Sunshine State saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 11:01 am
Did Caroline offer a vacation week at her place on The Vineyard?

Lizzy saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 11:07 am
Did Caroline Kennedy say “umm” a lot?
MariaV saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 11:37 am
It’s the lack of sleep that is stealing your memory.
I know because I also don’t sleep. I don’t wish insomnia on anyone.
kate saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 11:53 am
i think she shoved her bandaged toe back in her flat because eh, she just doesn’t care that much. sore toe, being a senator….eh, whatevs.
cathy saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 12:03 pm
You know, it’s like, well, you know I wonder what Caroline dreams about, you know. Probably not her grade in speech class, you know.
Grandma J saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 12:19 pm
I wonder what kind of injury Caroline Kennedy would have on her big toe? It’s hard to get blisters there so it was probably a hang nail.
Tricia saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 12:23 pm
Thank you for sharing your dream of the Kennedys. If I could remember what I dreamed last night, I would share,too.
karen l saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 12:27 pm
I love those last dreams before the alarm jangles me into the real world. Bizarre, unexplainable, but really kind of funny. I’m sure there’s some deep dark explanation of what my brain is playing, but hey, I’m shallow, so I’ll keep thinking of them as funny.
Maria saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 12:28 pm
oh bossy. the men in white coats are on their way, because hello?? I’m pretty sure Caroline would NOT have a settee, because she’s old money. I think new money does settees and old money does divans.
marchelle saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 12:34 pm
Bossy. It’s called Lunesta. And you need some.
Momo Fali saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 12:48 pm
Not a bad thing as far as complicated relationships go.
Shawn/Lifeatbuttercupfarm saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 12:58 pm
Once in a while I have dreams about JFKjr…I was on Cape Cod the weekend after he died staying on an island that faced Hyannis Port…that is when the dreams started…weird.
David saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 1:04 pm
“Bossy has a complicated relationship with death, where complicated equals she never remembers when someone died.”
I thought that was called Alzheimer’s.
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 1:08 pm
My interpretation of Bossy’s dream is this: Bossy’s list of husbands and boyfriends now extends into the after life, and that is truly one complicated relationship with death.
Well Read Hostess saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 1:30 pm
Let’s cut to the chase here.
Did the flats make her legs look stumpy or what?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Reeb saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 1:32 pm
I was dreaming about flaming design guys yelling at me and telling me how to be more svelte and less hunched over and bunchy, and exclaiming because one of the tassels was missing for the Important Display, and I was harrumphing about something being Bad Design. Woke up laughing. Then laughed more, out of relief that I didn’t really have to pay for the damage I’d done backing that rental car into the design guys’ sign: it was part of the dream too.
I say all this because Bossy assured me that people love it when I share my dreams. “People” does not include my husband. I have to bribe him to listen.
Oh wait? Bossy’s dream? Interesting! Sorry you’re having trouble sleeping.
earthmother saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 2:11 pm
Does Bossy think Caroline’s looking a lot like Eddie Munster in her dream?
Domestic Goddess (in training) saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 2:51 pm
What if Caroline Kennedy is sitting at her computer right now thinking about the dream she had about Bossy? Very likely situation, I’d say.
Sara S saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 3:00 pm
I want Bossy to dream she wants to be my friend on Facebook, because then she could have her dream come true!
POD saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 3:05 pm
My dream analysis:
Bossy is on the road to faceless fame and the only thing keeping her from true fame is her couch.
dgm saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 3:17 pm
They say that all the people in your dreams are actually some version of you, so really this is a dream about you having a sore toe, wanting to be your own friend but not wanting to reveal youself to yourself, and then deluding yourself into believing that you are still alive.
The Cheap Chick saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 3:24 pm
I love hearing about other people’s dreams, because it reaffirms that I’m not crazy. Or, that we’re all crazy, and I fit right in.
jen saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 4:08 pm
YOU. are the most creative person on the planet. 🙂
krg saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 5:22 pm
I love you bossy.
and I conquered insomnia with audio books.
Bush Babe of Granite Glen saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 5:48 pm
Seriously… you and my sister (jeanie in paradise) have the most vivid dreams of all-time. Have you ever tried just being REALLY TIRED physically. A day’s mustering and branding will do it for you. I promise.
Manic Mommy saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 8:47 pm
If you dream Caroline again, can you mention me to her brother? I have a complicated relationship with marriage; where complicated = able to sleep with dead celebrities in dreams.
annabanana saysFebruary 20, 2009 at 9:25 pm
I’m with you on that one … in my dreams, I don’t remember that someone has died either …
Shayera saysFebruary 21, 2009 at 1:20 am
Caroline’s relatives, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger added me as a Facebook friend. I’m still not sure why or what it means.
Michelle saysFebruary 21, 2009 at 9:15 am
JFK was the hot one. And Franklin was the hot Roosevelt, despite the wheelchair.
Unemployed Susan saysFebruary 21, 2009 at 12:40 pm
A few years back I dreamt that I was enjoying the company of my friends Sandra Bernhard and Isaac Mizrahi and woke up feeling sad because it’s not true.
Jill saysFebruary 21, 2009 at 6:32 pm
I too would looove to be facebook friends with Bossy but reluctantly understand why that ain’t happenin.
Sparx saysFebruary 21, 2009 at 7:59 pm
Oh Bossy, all those faceless friends and no facebook ones… you’re having friendship issues in your dreams!
Enrico saysFebruary 21, 2009 at 10:41 pm
I think dreams are SO fascinating. I often write my dreams down when I get up so I don’t forget them. I think it’d be awesome if you could record your dreams and play them back after waking…
apathy lounge saysFebruary 22, 2009 at 2:01 am
I had a dream and blogged about it, too. Unfortunately, it wasn’t about anyone named Kennedy.
get off saysFebruary 22, 2009 at 8:05 pm
I once “dated” that chick vee-jay named “kennedy” from MTV and despite her SUPER annoying TV persona, she was awesome fun in the sack.
country mouse comes unhinged saysFebruary 24, 2009 at 10:01 pm
I read this in the middle of the night when I couldn’t go back to sleep. Hours later, while actually sleeping, I had a dream about *Bossy*!!
You came to visit me for a surprise birthday (which was a total surprise since my birthday is 4 months away.) You were super fun and never slowed down with the constant organizing of your family (who also came to wish me a happy birthday?) And you were so wonderful to be around . . . except for when you made fun of my hair . . . which was fair because in my dream my hair looked SO BAD.
So . . . my birthday is in June . . . go ahead–surprise me : )
elizabethw saysJune 20, 2009 at 5:34 pm
