Once upon a time, there was a Bossy:
And that Bossy took a trip to, er, California:
But Bossy isn’t alone in California:
The reason Bossy is in California with a Ford is because Bossy said:
Bossy thought it would be no problem to arrange to spend her week in California with a Ford doing stuff typically L.A. and then writing about it when she wasn’t in a Ford doing stuff typically L.A., because Bossy took a 6-week road trip in a Ford last spring and managed to write about the trip nearly every day:
But what Bossy failed to realize is that doing stuff typically L.A. in a Ford every day takes up a lot of time. And the time spent not in a Ford doing stuff typically LA is limited to those hours spent sleeping:
And so Bossy apologizes to her esteemed council, and to Ford, who probably thinks Bossy stole away in her Ford to Machu Picchu:
Dare Bossy say check back later today for Bossy’s first installment in her Los Angeles Guest Rider series, since Bossy is staying home tonight in order to write that first installment, because that’s the thing about reading first Guest Rider installments: someone has to write them.
And that someone is Bossy.

Bossy are your feet really that long? They look much smaller in photos.
Amy saysApril 7, 2011 at 12:56 pm
Also, are you sure that stick figure is you? It kinda looks like a boy ;^)
lettergirl saysApril 7, 2011 at 1:00 pm
Is Bossy trying to tell us a hidden message? We will love Bossy even if she is really a man. WE DON’T JUDGE.
Carroll saysApril 7, 2011 at 1:19 pm
Ford will forgive Dear Bossy. Bossy’s Council never needs to forgive. Bpossy’s Council would MUCH rather Bossy be going all-out in the FUN department than staying in to tell us about it!
dgm saysApril 7, 2011 at 2:04 pm
Because those installments won’t write themselves!
Deb saysApril 7, 2011 at 2:05 pm
What is going on between Bossy’s legs?
Sandra saysApril 7, 2011 at 2:15 pm
Drive down to N. Cali! Would love to meet up!
Sewmouse saysApril 7, 2011 at 3:30 pm
Bossy has grown a TAIL?
thatgirlblogs saysApril 7, 2011 at 4:08 pm
may I just say that Bossy appears to have lost a lot of weight and should consider eating what I think is her spaghetti hair?
Michelle saysApril 7, 2011 at 5:04 pm
How exciting! My sister and brother in law work for Ford at the HQ. I wonder if you have ever met them. If you have, wonder if they know how cool you are, Bossy. I would have loved to have met you, if I worked at Ford. I drive a Ford, but I do not work at Ford. I do not work. I would like to drive to Machu Picchu, but I would probably steer to Belize and stay there forever. I guess that is why Ford does not ask me to test their cars, only buy them.

Bossy has a penis. (Let’s see what that does to your SEO!)
Birdbrain saysApril 7, 2011 at 5:23 pm
LA, so overrated and time consuming. SF, mo’ bettah and time efficient!
jenny saysApril 7, 2011 at 10:04 pm
Bossy – on Sunday 4/10 is LA’s CICLAVIA! 7 miles of streets in downtown LA are CLOSED and open only to bikes, feet and other things not motorized. Watch out for road closures if you are driving. But, better yet – park and enjoy the quiet and the smiles. 100,000 people attended last year.
Susan saysApril 7, 2011 at 11:08 pm
I like Bossy with a pee-pee, it makes her more interesting.
GrandeMocha saysApril 8, 2011 at 12:09 am
It is midnight here and I have to get up and go to work tomorrow (later today). Have some fun for me. Drink, eat dessert, talk to grownups.
Pam saysApril 8, 2011 at 12:20 am
Bossy is so East Coastist. Down here in New Zealand it’s still afternoon with HOURS to go before bedtime – which is a shame, because I flew back from Western Australia *very* early this morning and am busy with plenty of “my body thinks it’s x o’clock” calculations of my own.
Jacquie saysApril 8, 2011 at 2:23 am
One of my husband’s good lines is that a female-to-male sex change is called an “addadicktome”. Congrats on the success of yours! It’s adorable.
Dara saysApril 8, 2011 at 5:54 am
Live it up in that Ford….then when you get home, write about it!
Jami saysApril 8, 2011 at 10:46 am
One of the reasons I like going to California is that I get to stay up past my bedtime without staying up past my bedtime. There are other reasons I like going to certain places in California, too.
janet saysApril 8, 2011 at 10:56 am
Well! This stick figure certainly explains the “pancake boobs” and the “un-husband”!
janet saysApril 8, 2011 at 11:00 am
I think the oddity in the stick figure warrants an “Explanation Bedtime Story, The Sequel”
janet saysApril 8, 2011 at 11:01 am
Speaking of the stick figure, Caroll, #4, stuck an extra “P” in her comment too. Was that a subconcious Freudian slip?
Teeny Tina saysApril 8, 2011 at 11:16 am
Uh oh, somebody said penis. Now we’re gonna have penisgate.
Gramps saysApril 8, 2011 at 12:38 pm
And I’ve publicly stated that I love Bossy.
Hmmmmmmmmm, guess one is never to old to discover stuff.
Mandy saysApril 8, 2011 at 1:23 pm
Well, you know what they say about big stick feet…
Mandy saysApril 8, 2011 at 1:24 pm
Or is that big stick hands? Can’t remember.
Well Read Hostess saysApril 10, 2011 at 11:31 pm
Bossy. Apparently your readers are all fixated on one thing. But it bears repeating. And I’m not going to beat around the bus…I’m just going to come out and say it…what’s with the penis? Also, your picture of California is decidedly phallic.
Bossy. Let’s talk. Maybe over hotdogs? Or pickles. Or maybe just some hoagies on long rolls. You choose.
foolery saysApril 11, 2011 at 2:27 pm
Greeting from Etc., California! Hope you had a grand time. Next time talk Ford into sending you NORTH, to Northern Etc. With or without penile appendages. Pick up Gramps on the way and call it a party.
Gail K. saysApril 11, 2011 at 8:21 pm
So, Bossy, what we really want to know is 2012 Husband Ford better than 2011 Husband Harrison Ford that squired you all over creation and beyond (sans Ohio)? Or are they both special in their own special Ford way?
