I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human has a bad habit.
Me: Only one?
Stella: No, but I am too tired to talk about more than one.
Me: All right then. What is my failing today?
Wiggles: You stay up too late. When you should be asleep, you are punching that little black box with your fingers and looking at talking pictures or listening to weird music.
Me: Yeah, but I wear earphones for the music, so…
Wiggles: Uh, sensitive dog ears.
Stella: Uh-huh. Can’t fool us. We know what you’re doing.
Me: Listen. Y’all can go on to sleep any time you want to. I like to wind down first.
Stella: Did you get away with this sort of thing when you were a puppy?
Me: I am a human. I was never a puppy.
Stella: I can tell. Puppies have better sense than to stay up late when they could be sleeping. IiAlways be sleeping!
