I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am a good girl.
Me: Yes, you are.
Stella: Wiggles, on the other hand…
Me: What’s going on? Wiggles?
Me: What are you up to?
Wiggles: Up to?
Me: What are you sniffing over there?
Stella: Ahhkahhah…Lady Human. Wires.
Me: Wiggles, get away from those wires.
Wiggles: Why? What’s the big deal? I’ve chewed on those long, stringy things before.
Me: And, thankfully, they were not plugged in. And, thankfully, you didn’t get hurt.
Wiggles: How could a long stringy thing hurt me?
Me: Those wires conduct electricity.
Stella: One of those nonsense human words.
Me: You know what I’m talking about. The light that streaks through the sky.
Stella: Oh. The fire in the sky. IN OUR HOUSE? IN THOSE SKINNY THINGS? HOW? WHY? NO!
Me: Every atom in GOD’s universe contains immense power. Within wires, the power of electricity is contained and channeled for our use. It is very common with us. Still, it is to be respected, not abused. And that means, Wiggles, don’t chew on wires! Period! At all! Ever!
Stella: Wiggles, you’ve seen the sky fire.
Wiggles: Yes. It flashed near us not long ago.
Stella: Would you like it to flash inside your big old bulldog mouth?
Wiggles: Hmmm. No. I don’t think so.
Stella: There, Lady Human. Wiggles has a brain after all.
