I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. It is hot.
Me: Yes, it is.
Stella: How long is hot?
Me: Hot is not a length. It is a range of temperatures. Around here, people start calling it hot when it gets to 98 degrees Fahrenheit and above.
Stella: More human nonsense words. Does Fahrenheit mean hot?
Me: It does when the thermometer reads 98 degrees.
Stella: What is a thermometer?
Me: It is a special device that reads temperature.
Stella: Thermometers read?
Me: Well, it is more accurate to say that humans read thermometers.
Stella: So how long does the thermometer say it will be hot?
Me: It doesn’t tell us that.
Stella: Then what good are they? I don’t need a thermometer to say it is hot. I already know that.
