I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. The time for sleep is coming. Night has fallen. The time to pee is at hand.
Me: Must we have yet another discussion of pee?
Stella: There are very few subjects on Earth that merit attention. I believe that peeing is one of them.
Me: Well, okay. It is important, I admit. I just don’t like to spend a lot of time discussing it.
Stella: Anything worth doing is worth doing well.
Me: Peeing? Seriously?
Stella: Didn’t you tell me that there are human vets who spend all their time on peeing issues?
Me: Urologists? Yes. And they are not human vets. They are doctors for humans.
Stella: Insignificant distinction.
Me: Not to them or to veterinarians.
Stella: Peeing before bedtime is a time-honored bulldog tradition.
Me: Fine. I just like to think of other things before bedtime.
Stella: Things like what?
Me: What I did during the day. What I plan to do tomorrow. Did I learn anything today? Did I please the LORD is something that I did or said? Did I pray for others or only for myself? Did I set a goal and meet it?
Stella: And what if you need to pee? Where does that fall on your day end list? At the top, if I had to make a guess. Sort of interrupts all the other stuff.
Me: Oh, all right, I get your point.
Stella: Now that we are agreed, the time to pee is at hand. And then, good night.
