Every morning while on her 6-week (No) Book Tour, Bossy wakes up while it’s still dark, where wakes up is a relative term since typically you need to be asleep in order to wake up.
And then Bossy hits the road and drives and drives and drives with more driving for good luck. Bossy tries to push herself to drive at least two hours before breakfast, because all of that hunger keeps her plenty distracted. And when those two hours fade to memory, where memory is a relative term since it’s difficult to remember anything when starving and not sleeping, Bossy begins to look for a place to get her daily breakfast sandwich.
And when, finally, the exit sign appears in the distance listing the available restaurants, Bossy scans it for the orange and blue swoosh of her beloved Burger King logo.
Once in the restaurant Bossy stands there eyeing the menu trying to select which of the many breakfast sandwiches she will call her own. And sister mercy, Bossy, why on and on with the breakfast sandwich already? you may be asking.
Breakfast sandwiches are actually quite nutritionally balanced with a nice day-starting protein hit, that’s why. Egg, sausage, cheese, bread. All that’s not represented from the food pyramid is wine and chocolate and fish taco.
In addition, Bossy is all breakfast sandwich because Bossy has never begun a road trip day without a breakfast sandwich. It’s a tradition. A tradition wrapped in a biscuit, or a croissant, or sourdough bread:
And all for a reasonable price:
WebSavvyMom saysApril 25, 2010 at 2:01 pm
–>What are you using that has $197.30 of a balance left on it? At that price, BOSSY can purchase many, many, many breakfast sandwiches with $197.30.

Ok, I’ll admit I’m not a particular fan of Burger King, but I AM a fan of breakfast sandwiches. Especially my homemade ones. I also really like Dunkin Donuts breakfast sandwiches but I imagine it’s not so easy finding one of those off the turnpike. Or wherever it is you are.
Aunt Snow saysApril 25, 2010 at 2:03 pm
I’m looking for a Burger King to use my card at now!!
Suebob saysApril 25, 2010 at 3:22 pm
I have no idea how you manage to look so healthy. Must be good genes or something, because it isn’t the bkfst croissant + sausage combo.
lazuette saysApril 25, 2010 at 3:26 pm
Sister Mercy, how can the sandwich with all that wonderful protein be 2/3 the cost of a cup of flavored water? What is wrong with this picture?
Golden saysApril 25, 2010 at 3:51 pm
a 200.00 gift card? LOL! That’s a lot of breakfast snadwiches. I understand that allure of those little salty, gooey lumps of goodness though!
linlah saysApril 25, 2010 at 6:07 pm
Thanks Burger King for helping in bringing Bossy to California.
blackbird saysApril 25, 2010 at 7:11 pm
Blackbird has no doubt that the Burger King breakfast sandwiches are delicious (not that she’s ever had one) but she’s hoping Bossy has some blood work done when she’s done with the tour. Just sayin.
clickmom saysApril 25, 2010 at 7:28 pm
Bossy needs to sit down and watch “Supersize Me.” Beware the breakfast sandwich.
zelzee saysApril 25, 2010 at 8:43 pm
I knew there had to be some nutritional value in a breakfast sandwich…………
amber star saysApril 25, 2010 at 10:18 pm
Good grief….where the heck are you by now? It seems like you have been gone 40 days and 40 nights.
At the first of this post I wasn’t sure they had fast food at all in that sate. I figured that is how you keep your slender figure.
We are having fun with these visits and seeing the US. This trip could probably qualify for extra credit on a paper or class or something.

the only thing i will eat at burger king is the croissanwich, and had i known there was a gift card in that box, your dallas hostesses and i would have “lost” it 🙂 ok maybe not
JCK saysApril 26, 2010 at 12:27 am
It was great to see you as you swooshed through the L.A. area last week. So glad we could tempt you away from the big BK to have some other edible fare. 🙂
Happy travels, Bossy!
foolery saysApril 26, 2010 at 12:58 am
I have already begun assembling you some squishy California vegan protein breakfast muffins. Ewwwww, that sounds terrible. Forget I said that. I may be a squishy Californian with a muffin top, but I’m no vegan.
Dawn in Austin saysApril 26, 2010 at 8:01 am
On road trips, Burger King breakfast is the only way to go! I’ve been on that lonely stretch of road, looking for the good king to make me some breakfast. Worth the wait, when your’e starving and sleepless.
Gail K. saysApril 26, 2010 at 9:32 am
@ Chesapeake Woman – I would say that BOSSY is still hitched to (Harrison) Ford as he is providing th transportation – just sayin’. As for the rest, well, yes, I would probably dump them for a Croissan’wich too or John Cusack, whichever I could get my hands on first!
Patricia saysApril 26, 2010 at 9:52 am
About the only food at fast food places that doesn’t give me a stomache ache immediately afterwards is breakfast sandwiches! Here in Canada Tim Hortons makes a pretty good one too. But did you know that Wendy’s only makes burgers for breakfast here? No breakfast menu!! Scandalous!
joeinvegas saysApril 26, 2010 at 11:43 am
Get some good coffe. Oh, wait, it is more than the sandwich, so I guess it is good.
21st Century Housewife saysApril 26, 2010 at 3:09 pm
I do love me a Sausage McMuffin With No Egg. Tragic but true: I put extra salt on it.
Kerri Anne saysApril 26, 2010 at 3:40 pm
Jami saysApril 26, 2010 at 3:41 pm
I keep trying to get BK to hold the croissant and let me put my egg and bacon from it between two slabs of hash browns but apparently there IS a limit to “Have it your way”. I’m holding out fresh hope, though, now that KFC i s offering bacon and cheese between two slabs of fried chicken.
Audubon Ron saysApril 26, 2010 at 4:08 pm
Hey, I invented food.
heart shaped hedges saysApril 26, 2010 at 6:22 pm
Im kicking myself for not grabbing some of those cards…..I love the sourdough sandwich best!
Bri saysApril 29, 2010 at 2:26 pm
Thank you BK for sponsoring Bossy’s no book tour sandwich fix! We love Bossy and now love BK for loving Bossy.
