I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Me: Stella, come here. It’s time to go out.
Me: Uh, yep. It is. Why not?
Me: That is not an excuse for not doing what I say.
Stella: Of course, it is.
Me: All right then, if you’re not going to go out, at least finish your meal.
Me: Whyever not?
Me: Not an excuse. Also, it doesn’t answer my question.
Stella: Don’t have to answer because…bulldog.
Me: Oh, all right. Have it your way. I still say ‘bulldog’ is not an excuse.
Stella: It’s worked pretty well for me thus far.
