Her blue ankle bracelet.
Three years ago, Bossy’s daughter crawled under the desk where Bossy was working and ambushed Bossy’s ankle with a piece of blue yarn. She tied it so quietly and snuck away so seamlessly, it took Bossy several minutes to figure out what happened.
And then just to spite her giggling daughter, Bossy decided she would never remove it.
The above photo was taken in Bossy’s favorite place a few months into the life of the ankle bracelet. It’s become a much sicklier version in the intervening years, but Bossy has been loath to snip the remains away.
But she thinks she may this weekend. In with the new.
