Sneaking Snacks – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I have been cheated.

Me:  Cheated? When did this happen?

Stella:  Don’t play innocent, Lady Human. You know what you did.

Me:  What did I do?

Stella:  You were filling up our nighttime snacks for the nighttime Picture Box. Then, very sneakily, you slipped your hand into the cracker box and put a cracker in your mouth. Very sneaky and very wrong.

Me:  What’s wrong with me eating a cracker? I buy the crackers. I set up the snacks. Why can’t I eat a cracker?

Stella:  Not fair. Not even. You are getting more.

Me:  You get more than the others.

Stella:  SHHHH!

Me:  Oh, you haven’t told them about that, have you?

Stella:  Can’t I have any secrets?

Me:  Since I am the one fixing the snacks, no, not from me.

Stella:  Okay. I understand. You get an extra cracker to keep silent about our late-night Picture Box snack. A small price to pay. Sort of. Just remember. I’ve got my eye on you. One extra cracker for you. No more.
