Crazy Humans – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What is happening, Lady Human?
Me:  Crazy humans.
Stella:  That’s nothing new. But tonight, they are so loud.
Me:  Yeah. People with more money than common sense.
Stella:  When will the noise stop?
Me:  When they run out.
Stella:  Run out of what?
Me:  Money. Fireworks. Ammunition.
Stella:  Those things must be abundant.
Me:  Not really. And none of it is cheap.
Stella:  Why do humans make such loud ugly noises?
Me:  I think some of them are blowing off steam…almost literally. It has been a hard year for a whole lot of people. I like a good fireworks display as much as the next person, but that’s not what this is. And I have never understood the gunfire into the night sky.
Stella:  How can you tell what is going on? I only hear loud noises.
Me:  The big booms now and again are the fireworks. The fast, repeated pops are gunfire. This is why I made sure you all got out to potty and got back in early tonight. Those bullets come down somewhere. Our roofer found a couple in our roof a few years ago.
Stella:  Why?
Me:  Because people are stupid. And wasteful. And stressed.
Stella:  Will it stop?
Me:  Yes. It’s midnight. God help us all.
Stella:  He will, Lady Human. He will.
