The Heat Goes Ever On and On – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. For shame, Lady Human! You lied to a dog!

Me:  What have I done now? What did I lie about?

Stella:  You said the cool air was coming. You said that the summer was over. You said…you said…you said!

Me:  I did say that, didn’t I? I was going on reports from the weather people. I should have checked the Farmers Almanac. They’ve been around for a long, long time. They said it would be hot here through September. This is the hottest September we have had in 122 years.

Stella:  I don’t know what September is, but you need to put an end to it!

Me:  That is one of those many things over which I have no control. September will end when it is scheduled to end and not before.

Stella:  I am beginning to believe that humans have control over hardly anything at all.

Me:  It’s just as well you find that out now.

Stella:  Doesn’t that bother you? Being human with all the things you can do and all the things you can’t?

Me:  Not as much as it used to. Maybe I’ve grown up some.

Stella:  If I were a human, I don’t think I could ever grow up that much.

Me:  You are a bulldog though.

Stella:  I almost forgot. Bulldogs rule!
