I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. They are at it again, Lady Human!
Me: They? It?
Stella: Jerky McSquirrelyFace and his friends. They are throwing nuts on our heads from the trees.
Me: Oh, yeah, I noticed a lot of fallout from the oak. They are dropping acorns in the back and pecans in the front.
Tiger: Not dropping, ma’am. Throwing.
Wiggles: And their aim is pretty good.
Me: The chairs are covered with parts of acorns every time I go out.
Doodlebug: You should go out more often, Lady Human. Then you could be covered with part of acorns, too.
Stella: It’s a regular party out there.
Wiggles: Nuts, nuts, and more nuts.
Miss Sweetie: Who invited nuts to a party?
Stella: Squirrels, Sweetie. Sneaky little nut stealers. They never leave so much as a pecan for us.
Me: I could use the pecans, sure, especially during the holidays. But they are too rich for you all.
Stella: Lady Human, whatever do you mean?
Me: You know what I mean.
Tiger: She means bulldog gas, Stella.
Stella: That’s Queen Stella to you, Tiger.
Tiger: Queen or not, pecans still give us bulldog gas.
Me: Whatever happened to Flying Stella, Squirrel Fighter?
Stella: Awwww, Lady Human, Flying Stella is on a long vacation. Flying up into trees is a little harder than I thought.
Me: Well, when you get back from vacation, let me know and I’ll make you a special super-bulldog cape.
Stella: Like the crown you promised me? Still waiting…
Miss Sweetie: Crowns, pecans, capes, gas. I still want to know who invited nuts to a party.
