I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Kick it! Kick it! Kick it back! Kick it back! Harder! Harder!
Me: Okay, I’ve seen you back kick dirt and grass before when you’re finished with your…you know…
Stella: Say it! When I’m finished with my business. What’s the problem? Everybody does it.
Me: Not exactly.
Stella: Humans don’t kick dirt after their business.
Me: No, it’s not a practice with us.
Stella: Well, then how will anyone know you were there?
Me: We kind of don’t want anyone to know we were there like that.
Me: But what I really wanted to understand is why you back kicked so many times.
Stella: Don’t you always say, “If a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well.” I dare you to find anybody who can back kick dirt and grass better than I can. It shouts out, “Stella was here!”
