Weird Noises in the Night – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. No! No! NO! Not again! Noises, Lady Human! Stop them!

Me:  What? What’s going on?

Stella: It is the middle of the night. SLEEP TIME!

Me:  Yep. You’re right. But the only noise I hear is your…okay, wait.

Stella:  You hear it? The Queen never lies and is never wrong.

Me:  Well, I wouldn’t go quite that far, but you are right…

Stella:  Of course, I am. There it is again. What is that?

Me:  It’s one of the alarms chirping.

Stella:  Alarms. Should I be alarmed?

Me:  No. Just annoyed.

Stella:  Too late. I’m already annoyed.

Me:  That sound means ‘low battery’ and, naturally, it chose 2 a.m. to let us know. We missed changing the batteries in that one. I bet I know which one. Yep. One of the carbon monoxide alarms.

Stella:  An alarm CHOSE to wake us up for no good reason!

Me:  Figure of speech.

Stella:  If that thing is smart enough to beep when its power is low, how come it’s not smart enough to beep at a decent hour?
