Go, Rolling Box, Go! – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. As all people and bulldogs know, a queen must have a fine coach in which to ride so she can survey her realm and wave to the crowds.

Me:        Crowds?

Stella:    My subjects.

Me:        Look around. Your crowd is right here.

Stella:    Lady Human, if the Rolling Box won’t roll, how can I find the rest of my crowd. What is wrong with it? Why won’t it mind you?

Me:        Cars don’t always mind. A battery cable snapped and it won’t start. Tall Man is working on it.

Stella:    Tell him to work faster.

Me:        Nope.

Stella:    Tell him my subjects are waiting and, if I don’t come by soon, the crowds will drift off.

Me:        Stella, there are no crowds waiting.

Stella:    Yes, there are. I see them every time we roll around in the Box. They are everywhere. The Rolling Box must be fixed.

Me:        It will be, but Tall Man takes his time and does these jobs the right way.

Stella:    I can’t be a good queen without a royal coach.

Me:        Well then, you’ll just have to be a mediocre queen until tomorrow because the car is probably not going to be fixed until after your bedtime.

Stella:    Take me to one of those places we pass all the time, where all the pretty Rolling Boxes are waiting to be adopted into new forever homes. I wish to select a new royal carriage that will always start. You will buy me one.

Me:        Nope.

Stella:    It will be for me alone. None of the other bulldogs will be allowed to ride in it. It will have a big backseat, bulldog-sized, and… wait. What do you mean ‘Nope’? You say that as though you will not buy me a Rolling Box.

Me:        The purchase of a new Rolling Box as you call it is a big decision for humans to make.

Stella:    That’s all right, Lady Human. I will take the burden of the decision off your human shoulders and place it on my wide bulldog shoulders. There! Done! New Rolling Box, here we come!

Me:        We’ll see. To be continued…

Stella:    Nope. The Queen hath spoken.
