Bossy will just get straight to the point today, where today equals sister mercy it’s nighttime back home, but here in California Bossy has finally stopped driving long enough to post something — and who liked Bossy better when she was writing on East Coast time? Bossy put your hand down.
The above photo represents Dateland Arizona, an exit off Interstate 8, which is lucky because Bossy has become quite the Interstate 8 expert. The stretch of Interstate 8 between Phoenix and San Diego is very:
And sometimes it’s:
But Interstate 8 doesn’t strike Bossy as a date destination. Of course what does Bossy know? Bossy and (Harrison) Ford’s idea of romance is cavorting with the other cars delayed along the highway for forty-five minutes while emergency road crews tend to falling rocks:
And Bossy and (Harrison) Ford do other romantic things too, like their daily breakfast picnics!
Bossy and Mr. Ford also enjoy passing through the occasional border patrol checkpoints:
Bossy can sum up her romantic encounters with (Harrison) Ford in this way: He goes out of his way to make Bossy comfortable.
Which is what todays Ten-Word Tuesday is all about. In exactly ten words, can you describe what you would do on your ideal date?
And be sure to check back later today, or tomorrow Eastern time, or yesterday Pacific time, to read the best date ideas on the web.

Some mexican food for dinner, a good movie and popcorn!
Stacey Ball saysApril 20, 2010 at 7:31 pm
Hey, posting on California times gives those of us in California the opportunity to be the first comment. I’ve always wanted to be one of those dorks that says “My comment is first!!”
mia saysApril 20, 2010 at 7:54 pm
::laughing:: I do the same thing in the store.. make extra sure people see what’s happenin with my purse :)))))
Deborah saysApril 20, 2010 at 7:57 pm
My last date was November 1981. I forget what happens!
Em saysApril 20, 2010 at 8:05 pm
Medjool dates, a source for potassium and sugar cravings police.
(Bossy, I have done that drive soooo many times, being a Calizonan who first lived in Sedona for a really long time and now lives in Los Angeles and I am here to tell you, that is the most boring drive on the planet earth. Also, it looks like you’re down in Palm Springs somewhere and you can definitely get yourself a date milkshake down there.)
Jenn @ Juggling LIfe saysApril 20, 2010 at 8:05 pm
I’m blowing off the assignment to say that it is very strange to be commenting on a Bossy post just after receiving a Bossy email saying she will be out your house shortly. Yay!
sally saysApril 20, 2010 at 8:19 pm
1962 complete stop I-8, two cars drag race we win!
This actually happened on my 2nd date with my now hubby.

Good fun with a really great kiss at the end!
Suniverse saysApril 20, 2010 at 9:04 pm
Perfect date = booze, sex, cigarettes, booze, sex, cigarettes.
[I miss my youth.]
auntie dree saysApril 20, 2010 at 9:28 pm

Sad. Missed date with YOU in Scottsdale. Was outta town!
Catherine McP saysApril 20, 2010 at 9:44 pm

Cupcake Murphy saysApril 20, 2010 at 10:20 pm
Just realized: marriage = longest date ever where farting is allowed.
Baby Favorite saysApril 20, 2010 at 10:36 pm
I’d smuggle Mexicans from Arizona into California.
linlah saysApril 20, 2010 at 10:42 pm
Silence on the beach, a cold beer, all by myself.
cynthiagirl saysApril 20, 2010 at 11:08 pm
I really like holding hands as much as possible.
Know it All saysApril 20, 2010 at 11:44 pm
No date, time alone. Doing whatever I want! That’s perfect….

Bluebonnet trail with hubs and dogs, oh wait, that’s today!
km saysApril 21, 2010 at 9:14 am
a well-rested day, plenty of time to get ready, angelic kids handed over to the babysitter, nice clothes that fit me, good wine, good food, no rush home etc etc.
Reality; throw frazzled kids at babysitter, good dress doesn’t zip, work keeps ringing about some other bull***, husband is ready in two seconds, we can’t decide where we’re going……aaaaarrrrggghhhh
GreatAunt saysApril 21, 2010 at 9:33 am
A movie with popcorn and lots of extra fake butter.
middle-aged-woman saysApril 21, 2010 at 9:37 am
Visit great used bookstore, then coffee and talk for HOURS.
WebSavvyMom saysApril 21, 2010 at 9:37 am
–>My man and I eating, drinking and walking the beach.
JennyM saysApril 21, 2010 at 9:55 am
My ideal date isn’t suitable for a family-friendly blog. 🙂
BossysMom saysApril 21, 2010 at 9:56 am
A car trip would be involved. No agenda. Music, laughing.
The Chocolate Lady saysApril 21, 2010 at 10:32 am
I would gather with Bossy and others Tonight in California
joeinvegas saysApril 21, 2010 at 10:42 am
Best date: With my wife, doing anything (well, almost) get home early. (yes, we are getting old)
The drive from LA to Vegas is much more boring. Though Bossy will probably never find out (yes, still grumbling about the No Book Tour staying in California)
bdaiss saysApril 21, 2010 at 10:53 am
Nice weather, wine, great nosh, great conversation. Maybe some music.
Tiffany saysApril 21, 2010 at 11:20 am
Anything involving my boyfriend and kissing until lips are numb!

Reeb saysApril 21, 2010 at 11:45 am
Ideal date involves lots of wine with sweetheart/husband, no hangover.
ScottsdaleGirl saysApril 21, 2010 at 12:07 pm
Patio, Bacardi, Cribbage, Boyfriend, Kissing, then RAWR
Meg at the Members Lounge saysApril 21, 2010 at 12:10 pm
Sunny deck, burgers, beer, neighbors NOT under construction yet AGAIN!
Tootsie Farklepants saysApril 21, 2010 at 12:12 pm
George Clooney! Oh, I’m sorry. It’s WHAT I would do.
Gramps saysApril 21, 2010 at 12:21 pm
