What Are Tablitas and Why Aren’t You Giving Me Any? – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. The humans are celebrating yet another holiday. Sadly, they are not sharing their special food with us which is terrible because it smells wonderful.

Me:        Sorry, girl. These are tablitas, one of Tall Man’s grilled specialties, but not only are there small bones, but the seasoning has some ingredients that would be bad for you.

Stella:   All that information just makes it worse. Words like ‘grilled’, ‘specialties’, ‘bones’, ‘seasoning’, and ‘bad’.

Me:        I wish I could let you have some, but I can’t.

Stella:    Why are tablitas bad for me, but not bad for you.

Me:        Human digestion is different from bulldog digestion. For example, I don’t lick things off the ground and I have never tried to eat any type of grass.

Stella:   But you eat green leaves in big bowls so long as they are covered with weird goop.

Me:       Salads?

Stella:   If that is what you call them. Right now I would like a big bowl of tablitas without any green leaves.
