I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I have said it before. I say it again. Humans are crazy.
Me: Oh, humans are crazy, and bulldogs are not?
Stella: Exactly. I understand that humans celebrate what you call ‘holy days’. Those are important. Those make sense.
Me: Thank you for attributing some sense to us.
Stella: You are welcome. What I do not understand are the celebrations that are going on now. Loud, obnoxious, and without reason.
Me: Oh, like New Year’s Eve?
Stella: Yes, that one. There are things exploding. People are acting crazy. And loud.
Me: It’s the celebration of the start of a new year on our calendar. New beginnings. Getting rid of old things, old bad habits, starting new ones.
Stella: Why would anyone start new bad habits?
Me: I mean starting new good habits.
Stella: And that means that humans must act in a crazy manner during this time of change.
Me: We don’t have to, but we often do.
Stella: I have just one thing to say about that.
Stella: Stop it. The end.
Me: Those are two things.
Stella: Oh, and one more. Happy New Calendar Year. Whatever that means. And don’t blow up anything.
Me: Okay, I won’t. Is that all?
Stella: Yes. If you are celebrating anything, make sure we get special treats. We don’t want to be left out.
