I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Why are you being so nice to Wiggles? And why are you singing that funny song? Wait, let me sing, too!
Me: I am always nice to Wiggles. And I am singing the birthday song for her. Today is her 7th birthday.
Stella: Sing for me!
Me: I will when it is your birthday.
Wiggles: I have never understood the word ‘birthday’.
Me: It means the day you were born.
Wiggles: What is ‘born’?
Me: It means the first day you drew a breath on this earth.
Wiggles: And that is important?
Me: It’s a way we have of measuring time and life.
Wiggles: Is seven years a long time?
Me: Longer for some than for others. But every day is the same length.
Wiggles: It depends on what you do with the day.
Me: Yes. Yes, it does.
Wiggles: Then I will spend the rest of my special day up on my special table under my special pecan tree and it will not seem long at all.
