I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Me: I know.
Stella: Get up, Lady Human.
Me: I am.
Stella: Good. I have to make my bed.
Me: You don’t need for me to get up to make your own bed. And, by the way, you’ve been doing a good job of that lately. Very neat and orderly. All your blankets spread evenly.
Stella: Thank you. Move along.
Me: I’ll be back in a minute.
Stella: No hurry. Scrunch. Scrunch. Kick. Kick. Scrunch.
Me: Oh, I forgot…what’s going on? What is this?
Stella: It’s my bed. I made it up.
Me: That’s my bed you’ve made up.
Stella: You don’t have to thank me. I made sure it will be ready for tonight.
Me: No, not with my blanket piled in the middle. That’s where I sleep.
Stella: We all need to be flexible, Lady Human.
