Hello esteemed council, and welcome to Thursday, otherwise known as sister mercy Bossy has been posting every weekday for three and a half weeks and it’s all blending together.
Today Bossy was wondering if you could help her untie a twisty knot between her logic and rationale.
First Bossy should explain she thinks of herself as somewhat of a scientist, which Bossy’s children like to make fun of, preferably while eating the pricey Boursin Bossy purchased with her large scientific brain.
Anyway. It all began last Thursday. It was in the evening, and Bossy had a bunch of stuff in her car she would need on the drive the next morning because Bossy was going on a weekend-long Yoga retreat and Bossy knows, you would rather hear about the Yoga retreat!
So. There Bossy stood in her driveway peacefully meditating on the stuff in her car and whether it could stay in the freezing car — and when Bossy says she was peacefully meditating she means she called her brother cursing.
Bossy explained to her brother that although the temperature was dipping below the freezing mark as ever, Bossy was exhausted and therefore wanted to leave the bottled water and orange juice in the car, as well as her iPod shuffle and other technology. Overnight.
“I can just cover everything with that down coat,” Bossy said.
“But that’s not how it works, right?” Bossy’s brother questioned. “You can cover inanimate objects with a layer of insulation, but if the stuff underneath isn’t generating heat, I believe it freezes.”
Dear council: do you know what would happen to Bossy’s things had she left them under the down coat?
