I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges and…CUT IT OUT, WIGGLES!
Wiggles: HOW DARE YOU!
Stella: ME? HOW DARE YOU!
Me: How dare either one of you! Stella, face that way! Wiggles, you turn that other way! Now what started this?
Stella: She looked at me in my eyes. Nobody looks at me in my eyes!
Me: I do.
Stella: Yeah, I’ve been meaning to talk to you about that. I’ll let it go for now.
Me: Wiggles, what started it?
Wiggles: She looked at me in my eyes. I’ll put up with a lot, but I won’t tolerate that!
Me: Oh, my word. “She looked at me.” “And she looked at me.” Are you kidding me? As long as the two of you have known each other, that is still a problem?
Wiggles: Not if she keeps her eyes to herself.
Stella: I’m good looking, but I won’t stand for no staring.
Me: You know what this means? I have to hang a curtain between the two of you at night so there won’t be any staring.
Wiggles: Sounds good.
Stella: Yeah, that’ll work. Good night, Wiggles.
Wiggles: Good night, Stella.
