I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Me: I have a question.
Stella: If you must, Lady Human. Proceed.
Me: Oh, thank you so much, Your Majesty.
Stella: Finally! A little respect around here!
Me: What does ‘arrerrgh’ mean?
Stella; How would I know? It’s your language.
Me: No, I don’t think so. I know a lot of English words and that is not one of them.
Stella: Where did you come across this word?
Me: Out of your mouth last night.
Stella: Oh, in that case, I’m sure it had to do with something you were doing wrong.
Me: I figured as much, but what?
Stella: No telling now. It is probably one of my catchall words. I throw it out there and wait for you to figure it out. If you do, I give you a treat.
Me: You give me a treat? I’ve never gotten a treat from you.
Stella: That says a lot about your ability to translate bulldoggese, doesn’t it?
