Stop the Baby Talk – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human has fallen into a bad habit. She speaks to us as though we are babies.

Me:  I do not.

Stella: “Time to go out. Go pooh-pooh, pee-pee.” Sounds like silly baby talk to me. When you open the door, don’t you think that we know what to do outside?

Me:  Uh, well, what I’ve noticed is that sometimes you all get to playing around and exploring and then you forget to get your business done.

Stella: “Business”? What is “business”?

Me:  That’s what my very polite father called bathroom matters.

Stella:  That’s strange. I thought ‘business’ is what humans say they do when they go to those mysterious places you call ‘work’.

Me:  It’s both, I guess.

Stella:  I like your father’s word. No more baby talk. Just call it ‘business’. We get the idea.
