I am Stella, Queen…
Miss Sweetie: Look at me! Look at me!
Stella: EXCUSE ME! As I was saying before I was so rudely inter…
Miss Sweetie: I want to go outside! No, I don’t! I want to stay in here. Is it raining? No, it’s not raining! I’m going to sit down. No, I’m going to stand up.
Me: Sweetie, what’s wrong?
Stella: She’s wired. Is that the right human word? Or is it ‘weird’? I get those two words mixed up. Humans are so confusing.
Me: She’s definitely wired right now, but why? You spent a lot of time outside today, Sweetie, when it wasn’t raining . The temperature is way down. I don’t recall ever seeing an August day here with highs in the 70’s.
Miss Sweetie: Boring! No, not boring! No, I don’t want to go outside! What was that noise?
Me: What noise?
Stella: There was no noise, Lady Human, not that I expect humans to hear noises. Sweetie’s wired. And weird. It’s probably the weather change.
Miss Sweetie: What’s that? Where’s Tall Man? Where’s the cat? I want to chase the cat.
Me: She’s sequestered herself in a safe place until you calm down. I think maybe I should, too.
