I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Me: Hey, Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Pick a spot and get in it. It’s settle down time.
Stella: I am Stella…
Me: I know.
Stella: Queen of the Olde…
Me: I get that.
Stella: …English Bulldogges. No, not there. No, that’s wrong.
Me: Stella, what’s wrong with just laying down on your own bed.
Stella: It’s weird.
Me: It’s the same as it always is.
Stella: Nope. It’s weird. Don’t you hear it?
Me: It creaked a little, that’s all.
Stella: It’s too loud. Nobody can sleep on a loud, weird bed.
Me: Go ahead and lay down on my bed. That’s where you’re going to end up anyway.
Stella: Oh, okay. Wait. What was that noise?
Me: I knocked into it with my knee.
Stella: Now your bed is loud and weird! This is a nightmare!
Me: Stella, calm down and chill out.
Stella: The beds are weird. And I suddenly feel very…tired. So, I’ll flop down here. Keep the noise down, beds.
Me: Good night, Stella.
Stella: Good iii… (snore).
