Acting Up – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Wait! Am I? No. Yes. No. Who am I? What is going on?

Me:  Stella! What is wrong?

Stella:  Nothing. Everything.

Me:  Stop bouncing on the bed. Settle down!

Stella:  I am settled down. No, I’m not. Jump. Jump. Jump.

Me:  Why are you doing this? What’s the problem?

Stella:  I don’t have a problem. You do. You do.

Me:  I’m not the one jumping on the bed.

Stella:  Well, maybe you should be. It might make you feel better.

Me:  Here. Does that feel better? If I rub your shoulders like that…

Stella:  Well, yeah…ooh, yeah, that’s better. Just keep doing that.

Me:  So what’s wrong?

Stella:  The humans are crazy.

Me:  What’s new about that?

Stella:  Nothing, but it makes it hard for me to go to sleep.

Me:  You go on to sleep. I’ll stay up if need be.

Stella:  You’ll do that?

Me:  Sure. I do it all the time.

Stella:  Wow. Okay. Just let me know if you need help handling crazy humans.

Me:  All right, Stella. Good night.

Stella:  It’s a good night if you say so, Lady Human.
