Bedtime – Now! – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Bedtime! Bedtime! Now!

Me:   Looks like everyone is asleep already.

Stella:   Do I look like I am asleep?

Me:   No, but…

Stella:   Are you asleep?

Me:   No, but…

Stella:   That was the whole point. Do you notice something about my eyes?

Me:   Well, they are open…

Stella:   And…

Me:   They are staring right at me.

Stella:   Guess what?

Me:   What?

Stella:   They are going to keep doing this until we go to bed.

Me:   I set my own bedtime.

Stella:   How wrong you are! Hey, what are you doing?

Me:   I am averting my gaze.

Stella:   That sounds painful.

Me:   It means that I am not looking at you. Keep on staring all you want.

Stella:   Oh, I am. Bedtime. Bedtime. Bedtime. Bedtime. Bedtime…

Me:   Okay. Okay. We’ll go.

Stella:   If you insist, Lady Human.
