I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. A long, long time ago, the sun was our enemy. When exactly was that, Lady Human?
Me: Week before last.
Stella: Yes, I remember. So long ago. But now I hereby declare that the sun is our friend. It rained again yesterday. I thought you were supposed to do something about that.
Me: Who? Me?
Stella: Yes. Humans control everything. So… get to controlling stuff.
Me: We’ve been over this, Stella. Humans do not control everything.
Stella: All we want is for the sun to show up more often.
Me: Except when it is too hot and shines too much.
Stella: Yes. Now you understand. Just make sure it doesn’t go away like it has been. It should stay put.
Me: The sun is always there, even when the clouds cover it up for days at a time.
Stella: Now you’re just making things up.
Me: No, the sun is still in place. It’s just not visible to us.
Stella: And what about when it goes to bed at night?
Me: It’s still where it always is. The earth has just turned so that our side is away from it.
Stella: You don’t have to make up stories to make me feel better about the sun going on a vacation, Lady Human. Just let us know when it’s going to happen. So how many more vacations will the sun take?
