I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human! Keep the door locked! Don’t go outside!
Me: What? Why?
Stella: The bug face people are coming.
Me: Uh-oh! What’s going on in your head?
Stella: It’s not my head that’s the issue! It is the bug face people’s heads.
Me: Who are these bug face people you’re talking about?
Stella: I saw them on the Picture Box. You know. You were watching them.
Me: You hate the Picture Box. When did this happen?
Stella: I hate the giant Picture Box. You were watching the littler Picture Box.
Me: Oh, that! Those weren’t bug face people.
Stella: Don’t tell me about bug faces. I know what bug faces look like.
Me: What you saw were astronauts. They were wearing helmets.
Stella: I don’t know what astronuts are. Sounds like they belong in trees with the squirrels. And why would a human wear a bug face? Sounds like a human plot to scare dogs.
