Please, Go to Sleep! – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human! What is going on? Is there an emergency? Should we start barking?

Me:  No, please don’t!

Stella:  There is a bright light. Is the sky on fire again?

Me:  No, everything is calm.

Stella:  Then why are you awake and, more importantly, why am I awake?

Me:  I’m just playing a game on my phone. I’m a little wakeful.

Stella:  Should I lick your face?

Me:  No, that will not make me sleepy. Quite the opposite.

Stella:  Should I stare at you without blinking?

Me:  That won’t help either.

Stella:  I know what to do. I will pound you with my paw until you put your black hand box down. That will work.

Me:  Oh, all right.

Stella:  Works every time. Now GO TO SLEEP!
