I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Me: I have to tell you. I didn’t get to the store today to buy our special crackers, so…
Stella: What? There are no crackers for tonight? Horrible! Terrible! Not to be tolerated!
Me: Well, you’re going to have to tolerate it. Besides, I have an alternative. Try this.
Stella: Smells like peanut butter. Looks like two cheese crackers with peanut butter sticking them together. Did a human invent this?
Me: Yes, as with most unnatural things on this earth. A clever person decided that cheese crackers go neatly with peanut butter.
Stella: This is not normal. Beep… beep… beep… alarm…alarm…alarm…
Me: Okay. That’s all right. You don’t have to…
Stella: Hold up there, Lady Human! Did I say ‘no’? I am a bulldog. Bulldog is the very definition of not normal.
