I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Shhhh!
Me: I apologize for the poor manners of some of my fellow humans.
Stella: So it is your fault after all.
Me: Well, not mine personally, but human explosions, yes.
Stella: I can’t always tell the difference between the sky fire booms and the silly human booms.
Me: The other day were sky fire booms. We call that thunder. Last night and today were silly human booms.
Stella: You think that they are silly, too?
Me: I like watching professional shows. This stuff, not so much.
Stella: Make them stop! They are keeping us awake. And nervous.
Me: Be grateful that it only happens once in a while.
Stella: Is this one your weird special days?
Me: Yes, the Fourth of July.
Stella: Must you blow up the sky to celebrate?
Stella: More importantly, will there be hamburgers? Make the sky stop booming so I won’t have an upset stomach. Shhh!
