I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What are those noises, Lady Human, and you don’t have to tell me. I know the humans are doing something loud again.
Me: Those are just some firecrackers somebody nearby is shooting off.
Stella: Fire crackers?
Me: Yeah, not the big ones.
Stella: Why would anybody shoot a cracker? What a waste! I will take them. Do they taste good?
Me: They are called firecrackers because of the sound they make. They are not your type of cracker.
Stella: Aren’t they made with cheese?
Me: No, they’re made with explosives. In other words, they blow up.
Stella: Why are humans always blowing things up?
Me: I have no real idea.
Stella: Well, y’all better leave my type of crackers alone.
