I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges…
Me: Happy Birthday, Wiggles! Number 6!
Stella: Why wasn’t I informed of this?
Me: You don’t keep a calendar and I didn’t think it was necessary…
Stella: Not necessary to wish one of my kingdom members a special birthday greeting?
Me: Well, okay. Go ahead then.
Stella: Go ahead what?
Miss Sweetie: Is it my birthday?
Me: No, Sweetie.
Miss Sweetie: Why not?
Me: These things happen on a schedule.
Doodlebug: What do we get for Wiggles’ birthday?
Tiger: Is there a cake? Humans always have cake for these things.
Me: No, no cake, but something I think you will all like. Turkey meat!
Wiggles: Me! Me! Me!
Me: Yes, and since it is your birthday, you get a double portion.
Tiger: Double portion? What does that mean?
Stella: I think it means that the rest of us are getting cheated.
Me: Happy 6th, Wiggles!
