I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Sleep, Lady Human! Peace! Quiet!
Me: I’m not the noise maker this time. What’s going on?
Miss Sweetie: Nothing. MoonCat and I were just talking. Free speech just like you say, Lady Human. Am I right?
Me: No free speech rights at this time of night. Quiet rights. Silence rules at this hour.
MoonCat: Bulldog friend fun.
Me: I noticed. I am glad you get along but keep it down, please.
Miss Sweetie: We had better do what she says, MoonCat. You know what grumpy looks like? Lady Human without a full night’s sleep.
