Last night Bossy and her friend Martha went to Bossy’s friend Amy’s house for dinner, and to see Amy’s new apartment for the first time — and here are a few photos from the occasion!
Bossy admits she’s had a difficult time getting back in the game since returning from her six-week (No) Book Tour, unless that game is avoiding responsibilities, in which case Bossy is winning so you may as well forfeit.
But Bossy is going to try to make it up to you by telling you about last night anyway!
First of all, Amy’s new apartment house is so happy!
Once inside, Amy gave Bossy and her friend Martha a tour of the apartment!
And then, while Bossy obsessed online trying to locate two hundred photos of her favorite Barkeep and yours from Marfa Texas, Bossy’s friend Amy and Bossy’s friend Martha washed mussels free of their pubic hair:
Once the shellfish was scrubbed as emphatically as army pots in a Navy mess kitchen, Amy took those mussels and threw them in her simple, delicious homemade red sauce and cooked them until they opened:
Bossy can describe her night with her two sister friends in this way: As easy as falling off the chair. Which nearly happened!
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy what you would be eating tonight and with whom if given the choice?
And please check back later today, and Wednesday even, for the best food and friends comments on the web.
