I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am waiting, Lady Human.
Me: Waiting for what?
Stella: My third bedtime cracker.
Me: You’ve already had three.
Stella: Uh, I think not. I have only had two.
Me: No, you had all three. I set them out before you got into bed.
Stella: If I had three, that third one sure went by in a blink of an eye and missed my mouth entirely. Lady Human, can you count to 3?
Me: Uh, yes, I can. One…two…three…
Stella: ‘Cuz if you can’t count to 3, that’s all right. I’ll be happy to take over that task for you.
Me: I’d like to see your definition of three.
Stella: I am sure it will be more generous than yours.
