I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I’m hungry.
Me: Yes, I hear your stomach rumbling. Let’s get up and get your breakfast. It’s waiting in the other room.
Stella: Nope. I want to have that other kind of breakfast like humans on the Picture Box.
Me: Well, breakfasts here are pretty simple so…
Stella: You’ve seen them. They stay in bed and eat. It is the most wonderful thing in the world, and I want it.
Me: Oh, you mean breakfast in bed. Uh, nope.
Stella: Awww, come on, Lady Human! You can bring in eggs and sausages and biscuits.
Me: Yeah, I can bring it in after someone cooks it and that someone would be me. I had rather skip breakfast and stay here in bed.
Stella: Fine excuse for laziness. “Look at me. I’m lazy! I’m gonna keep being lazy! Why, you ask? Because LAZY!
Me: It’s an odd day when a bulldog accuses someone else of being lazy.
Stella: Who better? I am an expert in that field.
Me: Tell you what. Here are a few left over cheese crackers from last night’s snack.
Stella: Mmmm. I’ll take those. They’ll warm me up for the next course of eggs, sausages, and biscuits you bring me. If you hurry, you can get back here before I finish my breakfast crackers.
