Thus the summer concluded for Bossy’s son, who enjoyed a goodbye dinner on the porch Wednesday night prior to the blisteringly early morning drive into his sophomore year at Columbia University.
The car was filled to the upholstered roof liner with everything a Columbia University sophomore could possibly need, which translates into miles of poster tape, two speakers, and one kid sister:

You see, Bossy’s son is part of the orientation team for incoming freshman, and so he was allowed to check into his room a few days before his roommate. This meant Bossy’s son was free to select the bed of his choice and desk of his choice and wardrobe closet of his choice and desk chair of his choice, and not on that wall on this wall, and not near the door near the window and… let Bossy back up:
Enter Bossy and Bossy’s daughter, who came up with the plan to push the beds to two opposing walls with a wardrobe between them for a bit of privacy, which still left unoccupied walls for two individual desk set-ups and an open common space which allows the natural flow of chi from the door directly to a game of beer pong!
Then it was time for Bossy and her son to hug the summer of 2009 goodbye, and Bossy watched as her son was slowly swallowed up by the excitement of the street:
And then Bossy took a nose-dive into a margarita. The end.
