I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges and…
Wiggles: Please, Lady Human! PLEASE!
Me: If they have any for us, Wiggles. It’s not something I can force.
Wiggles: Why not?
Me: The chickens lay when they lay. I can’t just say, Hey, lay an egg, and they do it.
Stella: The chickens are disobedient.
Me: The chickens have their own schedule.
Wiggles: I have a schedule. I like to have an egg every day.
Me: That may not happen. Weather seems to affect them sometimes. Then other times, it doesn’t.
Wiggles: Egg! Egg! Egg! Egg!
Me: Okay, the good news today is there are 3 eggs.
Stella: No fair! Mine!
Me: How about this? I gather eggs tomorrow and hard boil them and maybe there are enough for each of you to have one.
Me: Yep. That’s fair.
Wiggles: Not to me. I’ve been out here, watching for eggs all morning. I deserve an egg raise.
Me: An egg raise? But waiting for eggs is not your job.
Wiggles: No, but I do it anyway, and I will settle for an extra egg every morning.
