Don’t Call Me ‘Honey’! – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human calls me lots of things. Girl. Good girl. Stella Bella. Hey! Stop! Don’t!

Me:        Those last three aren’t names.

Stella:    One thing I don’t ever want to be called by her is ‘Honey’.

Me:        Honey is not a bad word.

Stella:    It is when you say it.

Me:        Awww…

Stella:    I heard you talking to some human on your little box and you kept saying ‘Honey’ and ‘No, Honey’ and your tone was not all that happy.

Me:        Oh, yeah. Well, sometimes I fall into that habit when there’s a problem and I am trying not to be rude.

Stella:    So, you call people you are upset with ‘Honey’.

Me:        Yeah. It seems nicer than calling them something more blunt.

Stella:    Do they know that you are upset with them when you call them ‘Honey’?

Me:        They may be able to tell by my tone and by how many times I say the word. Don’t bulldogs get into arguments and call each other names?

Stella:    Of course. Stop asking me silly questions, Honey.

Me:        What?

Stella:    Nothing.
