I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Hey, Lady Human. Come on. Get up. Pet me. Scratch me. The sun is shining through our window. Up! Up! Up! Oh, what’s the use? Sleep on. I’ll catch you later.
Me: Good. She’s gone back to sleep. Truth be told, I was playing possum. I wanted to see how long she would keep tapping me with her paw if I didn’t respond. I won. Now…I’ll just stay still and wait…
One Hour Later
Stella: Lady Human! Lady Human!
Me: What? What happened?
Stella: You were lazy.
Me: No, I was playing possum.
Stella: Do possums snore?
Me: I don’t know…I don’t think so.
Stella: Then you are no possum.
