I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Wiggles: Don’t worry anybody! I’ll get it. No snake enters my house unchallenged!
Stella: Everybody stay back! Everybody means you, too, Wiggles!
Wiggles: I’ll get it, Tall Man! It won’t bite you!
Tall Man: No, but it might bite you and in a way you won’t expect. Back off, Wiggles!
Me: Wiggles! Wiggles! That is not a snake! It is the electric cord to the vacuum cleaner!
Wiggles: Don’t block me, Lady Human!
Me: Yes, I will! That is a power cord and it is plugged in. We’ve talked about this, Wiggles! Power – electricity – fire in a rope! Don’t ever bite one! You don’t want to ride the lightning!
Wiggles: Lightning! Like the fire in the sky?
Me: Yes, but a little more controlled.
Wiggles: Why did you let lightning in the house? You get upset when we let in a couple of flies.
