I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. The trees must be cold.
Miss Sweetie: If they are cold, why are they taking their clothes off?
Doodlebug: Yeah, and why do they throw their clothes on my head?
Tiger: Leaves what?
Me: No, I mean the trees. They are shedding their leaves.
Wiggles: How come? I thought they looked nice. Now their tree arms just look skinny and naked.
Me: It’s that time of year. That’s why we call this season ‘Fall’. And Autumn. We call it that, too.
Stella: Humans make everything complicated. Two names for the same thing. Too wordy.
Me: What would you call this season?
Stella: Cool Windy Cloudy Air Time. See. Isn’t that better?
