Bossy will keep this brief, as she is still recovering from her lack of brevity regarding yesterday’s love story. Or maybe that’s not lack of brevity she’s recovering from but the saké she drank with her mom while looking through old photos.
In whatever case. Last night Bossy blah blah and working late blah and when her daughter blah blah blah, and so the family decided to order takeout Chinese food.
Fast forward through enough sodium to stop the heart of the pig responsible for the spare ribs, and there was Bossy and her daughter facing off over the scattering of fortune cookies provided by the restaurant.
Bossy can’t remember what her daughter’s fortune said, she only remembers the disgust in Bossy’s daughter’s voice as she read it aloud and promptly hurled it into the trash can. Er, recycling people. Bossy meant recycling.
But Bossy’s fortune was the one pictured above.
Bossy can sum up her attitude toward this latest fortune regarding her past and the need to move into the future in this way: Bossy is with you, but the 80s leather jacket stays.
