I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What did you bring me, Lady Human? What? What? What? Huh? Huh? Huh?
Me: This was a wasted trip.
Stella: Store trips are never wasted on me.
Me: Well, this one was. I got there only to discover that I had left the money at home.
Stella: So? What’s money got to do with it?
Me: Sounds like a good name for a song.
Stella: What’s a song got to do with it?
Me: This is the way things work. Stores sell stuff for money. No money, no stuff. I forgot to put the money in my purse, so no shopping for stuff today.
Stella: But they wouldn’t deprive a dog just because her human was silly.
Me: It applies to dog stuff, too.
Stella: Take the money and go back.
Me: Maybe tomorrow. We aren’t out of anything yet.
Stella: I am out! I am out your special store treat for your Special Stella. Next time, I will go with you and I will carry the money in my mouth, so you won’t be silly and forget it.
Me: No, you won’t be carrying the money in your mouth. You might try to eat it.
Stella: Only if it tastes good. Otherwise, I will use it to buy my treat.
