I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. And I’m all shook up! But not in a good way! Lady Human! Are you trying to blow up the house?
Me: No! Of course not! That was very close lightning causing big time thunder.
Wiggles: Sounded like something a human would do!
Miss Sweetie: Yeah, Lady Human, no fair! Cut it out!
Doodlebug: Who interrupted my nap? Is it suppertime yet?
Stella: The windows rattled, Lady Human! The windows! Rattled!
Me: Yeah, all of them. Tall Man heard it, too.
Wiggles: Why aren’t you upset, Lady Human?
Me: No harm. No foul.
Miss Sweetie: My ears are scared now.
Stella: Will it happen again?
Me: Not today. The storm has passed.
Stella: Will it ever happen again?
Me: I don’t know.
Stella: And why is that? What about calling that man who came here when the big tree laid down on the house?
Me: The insurance adjuster. He can’t stop storms or lightning or thunder.
Stella: Then that’s not very good insurance, is it?
