I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Have you noticed it, too?
Tiger: It’s hard not to.
Wiggles: Should we say something?
Me: Why are you all consulting?
Miss Sweetie: They think you are wearing too many bulldog shirts and stuff.
Me: What do you think, Sweetie?
Miss Sweetie: I like them. You can’t be a real bulldog, so you wear bulldog pictures. Next best thing.
Me: I can’t help it. I am a fan.
Doodlebug: What’s a fan?
Me: Uh. Well. That’s short for the word ‘fanatic’.
Stella: What is a fanatic?
Me: Someone who shows excessive, single-minded zeal for something.
Stella: That doesn’t sound good.
Wiggles: Lady Human, does that mean you are crazy?
Me: No, just enthusiastic.
Tiger: Sounds crazy to me.
Me: Just because I have some bulldog shirts…
Doodlebug: And that bulldog picture on your little black box.
Miss Sweetie: And the other bulldog pictures.
Me: But not on my new baseball cap.
Stella: That’s because you couldn’t find a hat with a bulldog, so you got one with some other kind of dog. It’s all right, Lady Human. If you are going to be crazy, we are proud that you are crazy for us.
