Today is the Tuesday after Labor Day weekend, otherwise known as New Year’s Day.
At least that’s how it feels for Bossy as she stands poised to meet a few upcoming changes. And Bossy wants to tell you everything! Problem! Bossy can’t tell you everything! That’s because Bossy decided there are things she’s not at liberty to discuss. And when Bossy says she decided, she means other people decided for her.
For instance, there are people in Bossy’s personal life who don’t enjoy finding out about themselves online. Just as there are confidential circumstances surrounding Bossy’s work life.
So the following update removes only those details which could prove objectionable to Bossy’s friends and family and boss:
As you may remember, last fall Bossy began working for ___________ performing tasks such as _______ and ________. At first Bossy was able to work part time, which made Bossy very ___________. But then it became apparent that Bossy would need to work full time, due to _________ and _________, which makes Bossy very ______________.
And so, beginning today, Bossy will be working from nine to five. But only on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday and sister mercy will it never end Friday.
The saving grace is that Bossy’s workplace is very entertaining. Especially during lunch when Bossy’s coworkers __________ and ___________ discuss things such as _________ and __________. Oh, the laughs!
In addition, Bossy’s job itself is very dynamic. Bossy especially enjoys when she has to arrange for ___________ , or when she needs to order ____________ for the purpose of _____________. Bossy is also learning tons of things about the financial field, such as, yeah. Well hopefully someday she’ll figure out what it means to _______________.
As for Bossy’s personal life, _____________ graduated from ____________. And _____________ is preparing for a new school year by ____________. And Bossy’s ____________ can be described as __________ — sometimes he’ll even __________.
As for Bossy, she’s still living in a __________ apartment at the corner of ______________ and ___________. It’s a really _____________ apartment. Mostly when home, Bossy watches _________________, when not reading ___________________. Sometimes Bossy’s ____________ will come stay with Bossy, but only if it’s not too ____________ or too _______________, and if ____________ isn’t too busy.
In summary, there are many changes on Bossy’s horizon. But Bossy wants her esteemed council to know many things will never change.
For instance Bossy will continue to write on a new and improved schedule, which means she will post something here as often as humanly possible. Just keep in mind that the human is Bossy, which means, typically, napping.
And Bossy will continue to provide her unique point of view, where her unique point of view is a few inches taller than necessary, slouching.
Lastly, Bossy vows to keep this website alive with its usual elevated cultural exchange, where elevated cultural exchange equals Barbies reenacting Tom Cruise moments.
Thank you for your patience and support, council. It never goes unnoticed by Bossy. Love to you on this New Year’s Day, of sorts.

If you’re looking for something to write about that doesn’t include any personal deets, it would be nice to hear your thoughts about the current political situation. You always entertain and you have a great way with words that I then use on other people and take credit.
bossysMom saysSeptember 4, 2012 at 2:29 pm
#10. Bossy doesn’t have enough Barbies or Kenns with NO heads to do the Republican convention.
Perhaps she could use tea bags.

Being 6 months into the working full-time scene, I feel both Bossy’s pain and pleasure.
Yes, Bossy does need to do politics.

Lovelyn saysSeptember 4, 2012 at 10:34 pm
I’m glad Bossy is enjoying her new job and has a lot of exciting things happening in her life. I’m also thankful that Bossy provided a great Mad Libs game above. I’ve always liked Mad Libs.

So glad you are a blogger. Just want to say I stumbled upon your blog a few years ago…..the first one I had ever read! And the only one I have stuck with all these years! New posts brighten my day, even if they are few and far between, so just as long as you occasionally throw a post out, know that there are many of us cheering you on and waiting with baited breath for the next one!

I originally wrote a 4-page response to this post, but so much was redacted that it didn’t seem worth publishing. The one part I can reveal: I saw a racing-striped white Mini in town and thought, “Bossy, izzat you?”
Lynn saysSeptember 8, 2012 at 1:34 am
Oh, Bossy, I hope it puts a smile on your face and a song in your heart to know that we (so sweetly named ‘your council’) look forward to anything you post. Your very unique take on things is what makes you YOU!
Suzi saysSeptember 9, 2012 at 5:52 pm
Every time I mention any thing about anyone, 10 year old grandson says “That is an invasion of their privacy!”
