You are looking at a card Bossy’s mom sent to Bossy years ago, and when she did, she didn’t write on the inside so Bossy could reuse it because everything Bossy knows about poverty she learned from her mother.
Bossy can’t even glance at this card without falling into fits of hysteria, mostly because it reminds Bossy of her great-aunt Jenny. Still, Bossy is willing to part with it — except there never seems to be the exact appropriate situation to send someone an octogenarian with her leg up a pole.
Bossy can’t tell you how many cards she’s failed to send in her lifetime while waiting to utilize this one. For instance, Bossy has a friend, and his mother recently passed away. Bossy has another friend who recently cooked the Bossy family an amazing dinner. Two occasions definitely deserving of cards from Bossy, one a sympathy card and one a thank you card, and yet days turn into weeks turn into months and worse, and still Bossy hasn’t mailed any cards because a grandmom with her foot up a pole is inappropriate for both, and Bossy doesn’t have any other appropriate cards in the house, and although many people suggest there’s a whole world out there on the other side of Bossy’s red front door, Bossy thinks they’re just suckers! Like those people who think the world isn’t flat. Suckers!
That’s why Bossy was so thrilled when her friends at Paperspring offered Bossy a stack of customized cards. Here’s the deal: Paperspring has many templates in categories like holiday, baby, birthday, invite — and you get to customize the outside and inside.
So Bossy perused their website and decided she liked the following design:
Bossy loves the flower design that isn’t too flowery, and she loves the sophisticated chocolate and sea foam color combination — the only problem: who is Anna Sophia Brown?
But then Bossy remembered the bit about customizing! And so Bossy thought long and hard about what the most appropriate, versatile message for the outside might be considering her lifestyle, and soon she had her answer:
Bossy loves her high-quality cards — and that’s why she’s so delighted that her friends at Paperspring would like to offer one Bossy reader a $60 gift certificate, which is more than enough to order a stack of customized cards of your own.
Just leave a comment below, one per person please. Tell Bossy and her council what you would put on the outside of your cards, and tomorrow Bossy will utilize her friend the Random Number Generator to select a winner.
Good luck, council!
