Sleep Time – Conversations with Stella

20151220_230434.jpg

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I have a new song. Listen to this, Lady Human! Play time! Play time! Jumping on the bed! Jumping on the bed is for me!

Me:  Or how about this? Sleep time. Sleep time. Laying on the bed. Laying on the bed, quiet and still.

Stella:  Is that a new song of yours?

Me:  No, but it should be. Sleep time, Stella.

Stella:  I don’t like it. That song’s not near as good. I like mine better. Let me sing it again. Then you can jump on the bed, too.

Me:  I don’t jump on beds anymore, girl. I haven’t jumped on a bed since I was a kid.

Stella:   You must’ve been a fun kid, Lady Human. What happened?

Me:  I got too tall to jump on a bed without hitting my head on the light fixture in the ceiling. Plus, it was against the house rules.

Stella:  Why?

Me:  So that I wouldn’t hit my head on the light fixture in the ceiling. Or fall off the bed and get hurt.

Stella:  Silly house rules! That doesn’t apply to me. I won’t hit my head on the ceiling fan. Play time! Play time! Jumping on the bed! Jumping on the bed is for me!

Me:  Stella.

Stella:  Hmmm?

Me:  We have another house rule. Sleep time.

Stella:  Awww.

Me:  Check with me again when the sun comes up.

Stella:  Nope. When the sun comes up is when I go back to bed. That’s the real sleep time. Get your clock straight, ma’am. Play time! Play time! Jumping on the bed…

Me:  Oh, no.
