Bossy wants to tell you all about the three days she spent in Atlanta this week, which she will now do at great peril because Bossy broke her shoulder.
It all began when Coke asked Bossy if she’d like to participate in a conference at their headquarters, which makes all kinds of sense since Bossy hates soda.
In fact, when Bossy was asked by Coca Cola what her favorite beverage is, Bossy didn’t hesitate to tell them the truth.
But the next thing Bossy knew, her plane was landing on the Georgia tarmac and Bossy was falling into the arms of a striking chauffeur holding up a sign with Bossy’s name on it!
And then Bossy met the other blogging women she would spend the next 4,320 minutes getting to know:
Basically Bossy and the other women were in Atlanta to exchange ideas with Coca Cola regarding their latest community-based Live Positively initiative, which is another way of saying Sister Mercy they all did the Soul Train dance line.
It turns out Coca Cola’s philanthropy reach is as broad as their inventory of beverages which are not soda. Bossy learned that Coke readily partners with the likes of the World Wildlife Fund and the Rails To Trails campaign — and they have their hands in everything from clean water concerns to scholarships and women in the workplace initiatives.
But that’s not what Bossy wants to talk about. She wants to tell you about the celebrities that work at the Coke headquarters. Like Cameron Diaz:
And Padma Lakshmi:
And Justine Bateman:
Coca Cola doesn’t so much have employees as an enormous extended family of bright inspired people. But before you could say Wow those Coke people know good food in and around Atlanta, it was time for Bossy to fly home. Lucky thing Bossy sat next to Darrell Hammond:
And was across the aisle from Larry David!
Oh, Atlanta and Coca-Cola and those hilarious nineteen fellow bloggers, Bossy will miss you more than you know.
