You are looking at one of Bossy’s New Year’s resolutions, which is read more. It’s strange, Bossy used to be quite the reader. Of course, that was back when Bossy was the reader who was frustrated she wasn’t writing. Which is a coincidence since Bossy is now the writer who is frustrated she isn’t reading.
But back to Bossy’s first resolution, and the book that will help break this spell, The Girl With The Pearl Dragon Earring Tattoo.
Bossy has three things she wants to share with you about this book. The first is how you can tell by the limited rumpled pages that Bossy hasn’t made it that far into this Swedish crime novel. Namely, page 17. Out of 644.
Next Bossy wants you to know the print on these many pages is very, very small. If in fact it truly is print, and not fleas as Bossy suspects. Fleas organized into sentences.
And finally Bossy wants you to know Bossy’s son is currently reading the same book! In Spanish.
Bossy’s next resolution is to update her blog with the kind of five-days-a-week frequency her readers have enjoyed here on I Am Bossy for the past five years. Which is why Bossy began her first week of tackling this resolution by playing hooky — including today with Bossy’s mom, which consisted of sitting inside Bossy’s fireplace drinking hot chocolate and talking and snacking.
Which leads Bossy to her next resolution: stop snacking.
Other Bossy resolutions: Stop the cursing and the yelling.
And lastly, Bossy’s final resolution, which is: Go to Detroit in mid January. Because sub-artic Philadelphia isn’t nearly cold enough.
And Bossy’s resolution is about to come true! Who remembers Bossy’s boyfriend (Harrison) Ford?
Well, Bossy is about to be reunited with (Harrison) Ford‘s extended family at the Ford headquarters in Detroit for a few days this coming week while Bossy attends Ford’s Green Driving Technology Event and the North American International Auto Show, even though Bossy isn’t entirely sure how it can be both a North American auto show and an International auto show. But that’s just how magical Ford is!
But don’t just rely on Bossy’s description of what she’ll be doing in Detroit. Here’s Ford’s official disclaimer to clarify: Bossy was invited to participate in this program by Clever Girls Collective, Inc. in partnership with Ford and Ogilvy PR. Ford Motor Company paid for Bossy’s travel and accommodations at the 2-day Driving Green Technology event, Bossy was not compensated in any other manner for her time. Bossy’s opinions posted here are her own.
This disclaimer is good news since Bossy’s opinions are just about the only opinions Bossy can handle.
Meanwhile, Bossy will try to adhere to her New Year’s resolutions while freezing her
ass hiney off in Michigan. Wait, they don’t have snacks in Detroit, do they?
