I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. My bulldog head is bigger than some dogs’ entire bodies. It is a wonderful thing to behold.
Me: Sounds like you have a big head. Hah!
Stella: I just said that.
Me: Well, I meant…never mind.
Stella: No, go ahead, Lady Human, don’t never mind me.
Me: Humans mean something different by big head. If somebody has a big head, they think highly of themselves, too highly.
Stella: Exactly. I have a great big head.
Me: We mean it like when somebody is all puffed up about themselves.
Stella: That’s me. Big puffed up head. I can’t fit it through hardly anything, but I can knock a bunch of stuff aside with it.
Me: But we aren’t talking about the size of someone’s head. We’re talking about their attitude about themselves.
Stella: I’d like to meet some of these big-headed humans. They sound like my type of folks.
