Read My Mind – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human does not understand me. I need my bulldog/human dictionary, but I have not finished it. Truthfully, I have not even started it yet. It’s not my fault. Naps cut way into my daily schedule.

Me:        Try me.

Stella:    Okay. Try this. Look at my face. Listen to my voice. Mmmmm-shish.

Me:        All right. Do that again.

Stella:    Mmmmm-shish.

Me:        You want to go outside.

Stella:    Nope.

Me:        You want a treat.

Stella:    Nope…well, yeah, always, but not my message.

Me:        Sorry, I don’t know what you are thinking.

Stella:    You see? I need a mind reader.

Me:        Or maybe you need to send a stronger message.

Stella:    Uh, no. I think the problem is on your end, Lady Human. Let’s try again.

Me:        Very well.

Stella:    Mmmmm-shish.

Me:        Don’t tell me. Let me guess. You want to chase the cat.

Stella:    Of course, but no. Try again. Mmmmm-shish.

Me:        Oh, I’ve got it! Snoopey is talking to Moon the Cat and you want them to shut up!

Stella:    Yes! Yes! Yes! YES! What clued you in?

Me:        The disgusted, irritated tone.

Stella:    Good. It finally came through. Remember that tone for future reference.
