Turn Out the Light! – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Bedtime!

Me:  I am looking for something.

Stella:  Lights out!

Me:  This is just a little flashlight. If it bothers you, look away.

Stella:  What is so important that you pierce the darkness with your puny little light?

Me:  Oh, the book of essays by C.S. Lewis that I was reading, Present Concerns.

Stella:  My present concern is that the light is still on. Bedtime!

Me:  Just a minute.

Stella:  At times like these, I am happy that I can’t read. Do you remember when the big storm turned the lights off for days?

Me:  Sure. It was almost a year ago. I read by flashlight then.

Stella:  Bad habits form fast.
