Moonstruck – Conversations with Stella and Wiggles

 I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am asleep. Leave me alone.

Me:  Wiggles wants to go out.

Stella:  Do that without me then.

Me:  Come on, Wiggles. What seems to be the problem?

Wiggles:  I am all right. I will just sit outside for a while.

Me:  Well, I will sit out here with you. What are you doing?

Wiggles:  Where is it?

Me:  What?

Wiggles:  The shiny night light in the sky.

Me:  The moon? It isn’t up yet. And besides, it’s just a sliver to us this time of month. Is that why you’ve been insisting on coming out here this time of night lately?

Wiggles:  I have to check on it. It has a schedule to keep and I am a guard dog.

Me:  You are that, but the moon keeps  time without us.

Wiggles:  I think it is late. Maybe that snow froze it. Maybe a coyote ate it. Maybe…

Me:  Maybe we should go back inside and get some sleep.

Wiggles:  If you say so. Can we look for it again?

Me:  Yeah. But not tonight.

Wiggles:  Don’t worry. I will wake you up when it’s time.

Me:  I have not doubt.
