I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. And dinner time is…NOW!
Me: Hold on a minute!
Stella: Oh, no! We’re not playing that silly game again.
Me: I mean, how do you know what time it is? You have no sense of time.
Stella: We have a sense of dinner. Food! Food! Food!
Me: All right. So, ten minutes ago, you were not ready for food.
Stella: Ten minutes? I don’t know when that was, but we are ready now.
Me: And five minutes ago, you were not ready for food.
Stella: Five minutes? Meaningless. But we are ready now.
Me: And one minute ago, …
Stella: What is this thing called a ‘minute’ you keep talking about? We are ready for food NOW!
Me: Okay. Okay. Here comes the food. You all must have clocks in your stomachs.
Stella: I don’t know about that. When were we served clocks for dinner? Not that we mind. We are happy to eat anything you offer us.
