I am Stella, Queen Illustrious of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am herewith issuing a red alert. Breakfast was delayed this morning by almost half an hour and, when it did come, it was different.
Me: No red alert is necessary, girl…excuse me, Your Majesty. We ran out of your regular food and so did the store.
Stella: What??? That cannot be!!! How did you let this happen, Lady Human? How did the other humans let this happen? Call everyone! Call the police! Call the army! HELP!
Me: Remember when the store ran out of your favorite treats? Everyone survived.
Stella: It was so hard though.
Me: The man at the store said that they will have your regular food in by lunchtime tomorrow.
Stella: No!!!! Too late!!!!
Me: Was your old food brand so terrible this morning?
Stella: It was different. We don’t like different. Never let this happen again!
Me: I’m not sure that I can guarantee that.
Stella: Why not? You are human. You can do anything.
Me: Mmmm. Not so much.
Stella: You are scaring me, Lady Human.
Me: Nothing is too hard for the LORD. Humans have limitations and, to be honest, I am glad. There are quite a few humans that I would not want to have unlimited power. In fact, there aren’t any humans that I would want to have unlimited power. Including me.
Stella: Aaaaggghhh! How does that solve our food problem?
Me: Your problem will be solved by tomorrow. If we have to go further and search harder for your food or if we even have to make it ourselves, we will. Did you go hungry today?
Stella: Well, no, not really, though I am always willing to take a little more.
Me: You see? No genuine problem.
Stella: Still it bothers me to know that you do not have unlimited powers.
Me: Really? It is a great comfort to me.
