I am Stella, Queen of the Olde Bulldogges.
Me: NO! UN-UH! NOT IN THERE!
Stella: Who’s in trouble now?
Me: Not a bulldog.
Wiggles: That’s unheard of.
Miss Sweetie: It was MoonCat.
Doodlebug: I missed it. What happened?
Miss Sweetie: The cat stuck her head in the big cold box.
Wiggles: Lady Human, you didn’t let me do that. And I tried.
Me: I didn’t let MoonCat do it either.
Miss Sweetie: And there are wonderful things in that secret place.
Me: Listen to me, everyone. Only humans get to stick our heads in the refrigerator.
Stella: What about paws?
Wiggles: What about tongues?
Doodlebug: What about noses?
Me: Your nose is part of your head, so the answer is no.
Stella: Paw are not on our heads so we can stick those in the cold box.
Stella: Come on, Lady Human. If you are going to make rules, the rules have to make sense.
Me: Okay, how about this? Nobody but a human is allowed to stick any part of anything into the refrigerator.
Stella: I liked the confusing cold box rule better. More wiggle room. Right, Wiggles!
Stella: Remember to share.
