I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Watch me walk. I am sassy when I walk.
Me: Yes, you are.
Tiger: You know who is sassier when they walk? Me.
Stella: Hush that ugly talk! I’m sassier than anybody.
Wiggles: What about my dancing? Isn’t that sassy?
Me: Yes, indeed. Your dancing is sassy. You are a great tap dancer.
Stella: But not as sassy as me, right?
Tiger: But not as sassy as me, right, Lady Human?
Miss Sweetie: What is sassy? Am I sassy?
Doodlebug: You are a rampager, Sweetie. Rampaging is not sassy. It is straightforward. Like me.
Me: Yeah, Doodle is a prancer. Like a stallion. Pretty straightforward.
Doodlebug: And sassy.
Me: A little bit, yeah.
Miss Sweetie: Why is rampaging not sassy?
Tiger: Rampaging means you are charging through the world without any style or glamour. Sassy means you are stylish like me. Showing off. I am a show off because I’ve got so much to show off.
Stella: How about when I show off? Everybody watches when I show off.
Me: Probably because you stand in the middle of the room and play bow until I notice.
Stella: You notice. Everybody notices. Sassy.
