I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Tiger: Everyone stay completely still …while I bark my head off!
Me: Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! What’s the matter?
Tiger: A monster is eating the doorknob, Lady Human! It must be stopped!
Me: That’s not a monster. It is a tote bag I was given. I don’t bring monsters into the house.
Stella: You brought Tiger.
Tiger: How dare you! Who do you think you are?
Stella: I am the Queen. I have queenly free speech rights.
Me: Enough, you two. I’ll move the tote. It won’t cause any more consternation.
Stella: Where did you get that monster bag?
Me: At the Pen Show.
Stella: I was right! When you left this morning, I knew you were up to no good.
Me: I went to the annual Pen Show. How is that being up to no good?
Stella: Did you bring us anything?
Me: Well, no.
Stella: Then it was no good for us!
