I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am in the Freak Zone. That is like the human Picture Box show “Twilight Zone”, but different, because this is real because it is going on right here, right now!
Me: I’m sitting right here, too, and I don’t see any freak zones.
Stella: There is a voice coming out of that little box you carry everywhere.
Me: My phone? Sure. That’s what a phone does among other things.
Stella: No. You are not talking to Tall Man. I know his voice. There is a woman in your phone box. She is talking. I can see her. She said your name. AAAAAAGGGGHHHH!
Me: She is not IN my phone. She is on my phone.
Stella: She is trapped inside the little box! They shrunk her! She is trapped! Help her, Lady Human! Help her get free!
Me: Stella, it is all right. She is broadcasting live on Facebook.
Stella: Her face is in a book, talking to you? NOOOO!!!
Me: She is not in the box. She is in another city and she is filming herself with a camera.
Stella: What does that even mean? City? Filming? Camera? I can see her tiny little self in your box! What kind of place is this?
Me: Maybe you should look at something else if this freaks you out.
Stella: Why does this NOT freak you out?
Me: Because I understand what is going on. Nothing is wrong. I’m sorry that it bothered you. This is just normal for humans now.
Stella: As I suspected, humans live in the Freak Zone.
Me: Yeah, sometimes.
