I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What are you doing, Lady Human?
Me: Pulling up stumps from last season’s overgrowth.
Stella: Oh, that’s different than what I thought ‘cuz to me it looks like you’re wasting time.
Me: This may look easy but it’s not. These stumps have deep roots, and they don’t give way easily.
Stella: Put your foot down.
Me: How will that help?
Stella: I tell you all the time. Be a bulldog! What happens when one of us won’t go where you want us to go? We put our feet down and then you put your foot down and the biggest foot wins. So put your big ole foot down. Show that little bitty ole stump who’s boss.
Me: Hey, it moved.
Stella: Duh. Of course, it did. You have the world’s biggest feet.
Me: I beg your pardon.
Stella: Beg all you want to. It won’t change facts.
