I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Quiet! Please! Beauty sleep time.
Me: What are you talking about?
Stella: That’s it! Talking! That’s what I’m talking about!
Me: All right. Talk.
Stella: NO! Tonight is not going to be like last night! Talk! Talk! Talk! As though humans have anything worthwhile to say.
Me: That was an oddity. Tall Man came home late, and you woke up and needed to go outside and we started talking…
Stella: And you didn’t stop talking, even after I came back inside. I gave you all the signals. I climbed into bed. I arranged my blankets…
Me: My blankets, actually.
Stella: Not in the mood to debate that, Lady Human. I even bulldog grumbled and you all kept talking and talking and talking…
Me: We had a lot to talk about.
Stella: And talking and talking and…
Me: Okay. I get the picture.
Stella: You have my permission to talk, but only during daylight hours and only when I am awake.
Me: That narrows the field.
Stella: And yes, you may talk in any field as long as I am not asleep in it.
