I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human!
Me: Just a second.
Stella: Lady Human!
Me: Another minute, Stella.
Stella: Lady Human!!!
Stella: I’m ready for bed.
Me: Okay. I’ll be ready in a bit.
Stella: What’s taking so long?
Me: Stuff. All sorts of stuff. If you are bored, take a nap.
Stella: I’ll wait. I’m just ready.
Me: Do you feel all right?
Stella: Yeah. It’s just that…
Me: What, girl?
Stella: I look forward to this time every day. It’s my favorite time. I get to go back to your room with you. I get to share snacks with you. It makes me feel special. I look forward to it every day after the sun goes to bed.
Me: I’m glad. Thank you, Stella. That makes me feel special, too.
Stella: This is not about you, Lady Human.
Me: Sorry. I forgot.
