Take Advantage – Conversations with Stella and Tiger


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I feel insulted.

Me:  Oh, no. What now?

Stella:  You know what happened.

Me:  Are you talking about your special bathroom area and how someone did not care to use it?

Stella:  Yes, and yes and you know who it was.

Me:  I know.

Stella:  I very generously offered Tiger my special rainy-day bathroom spot and what did she do?

Me:  She did not take advantage of it and ran back inside.

Stella:  Exactly. What do you have to say for yourself, Tiger?

Tiger:  Mmmmmm.  I got scared.


Stella:  Of what?

Tiger:  That big weird room with all the metal and funny smells.

Me:  We call it the ‘garage’. The funny smells are from lawnmowers and edgers and other such machines. But you made it past all that and I was out there with you.

Tiger:  Yes, there was green grass and fresh air and then, that thing…that rolling thing…that scary rolling box thing.

Me:  The man who drove by? I know him. He’s not scary.

Tiger:  He scared me.

Me:  Listen! Never pass up an opportunity to go to the bathroom if you need to. Take advantage of your opportunities. What happened a few minutes after you ran back in the house?

Tiger:  I had to go to the bathroom.

Me:  See!

Tiger:  Sorry, Lady Human, but I reserve the right to select my favorite bathroom spot, just like you do.
