Fussbudget – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Phhuubbbb!

Me:        What?

Stella:    Pooh!

Me:        Say again.

Stella:    Blubb, phubb, blaagghh! Hmmmpphh! Don’t talk to me!

Me:        What a fussbudget!

Stella:    Fussy budgie?

Me:        Fussbudget. Whiner. Complainer. Grumbler.

Stella:    Budget? Like when you cut back on our treats. Pooh! Don’t try to budget my fuss!

Me:        Why are you in a bad mood?

Stella:    How much time do you have? Because I have a long list.

Me:        No, please. No lists today. Maybe tomorrow.

Stella:    I will hold you to that promise.

Me:        I’m just not in the mood for a list of complaints. I have some of my own and I am trying to stay positive.

Stella:    Well, I am positive. I have a long list. And I am adding your name to it.

Me:        Why? What did I do?

Stella:    You called me a fussy budget. How is calling someone a name supposed to put them in a better mood.

Me:        I believe that sometimes when your friend is acting badly, you do them a favor by calling them out on it. Otherwise, they may just keep on acting ugly and never realize it.

Stella:    Well, still. Calling me…did you say ‘friend’? Me?

Me:        Yes.

Stella:    I am your friend?

Me:        Yes.

Stella:    But you have a bunch of friends.

Me:        No.

Stella:    That makes me special.

Me:        Yes.

Stella:    Your friend. And a fussy budget. That’s me.
