I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Oh, no, not already. Please say it ain’t so, Lady Human!
Me: It’s 5:30 in the morning. It’s pitch black outside, not even a glimmer of dawn. Doodlebug! This is an indecent hour for breakfast!
Doodlebug: No hour is indecent for breakfast. Sweetie agrees.
Me: Sweetie is snoring.
Doodlebug: Give me a second. I’ll convince her.
Me: Okay. Okay. Breakfast. Here.
Doodlebug: Is this all? Where’s the special stuff?
Me: This is all there is right now. The kitchen is closed.
Doodlebug: Well, my stomach is never closed. You need to rethink those kitchen hours, ma’am.
