First of all, Bossy apologizes for being a day late with Ten-Word Tuesday — or to be more specific A day late plus 56 years. At least that’s how far behind Bossy feels as she moves into the final stages of her (No) Book Tour planning and prepares to make many announcements, including exact itinerary dates and cities and sponsors.
Tuesday April 6th is Bossy’s departure date. That’s only twenty days away, council. Veinte, twintig, dvidešimt, tjugo, enty-tway days. So Bossy is once again updating the daily (No) Book Tour countdown calendar in her left column, where updating equals Who has time to update when Bossy is leaving in twenty days?
Speaking of Bossy’s (No) Book Tour (With) Nervous Breakdown, unless you filled out this form you are not officially signed-up to be a part of the road trip. Emails to Bossy are sweet, and comments are grand, and shouting to Bossy across streets is cute, but you need to fill out this form in order to receive information about the get-togethers, and to get mapped and linked on Bossy’s site — this means everyone including Bossy’s gays and including Bossy’s mom and including Bossy.
Anyway, where was Bossy? Ah yes, Tuesday. On Wednesday.
The above photo does not represent a mummy, but rather the little nest Bossy’s friend Martha prepared for Bossy a few weeks ago when Bossy was for the most part immobile and recovering from leg surgery and recovering from losing her mind due to leg surgery.
“Come on over,” Martha said — and to this end, Martha prepared Bossy a place to sit and pull her legs up and provided her a cozy comforter and three hours worth of The United States of Tara on DVD and a lunch representing the four food groups: Soup, bread, spanakopita, and wine.
Bossy can summarize her day spent at Martha’s house wrapped in a sofa nest in this way: Dear Martha, Bossy will be moving in shortly. Warn Netflix.
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge (on Wednesday) is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy and her council about the last nice thing a friend did for you, or you did for a friend?
