I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Shhhhh! Let’s wait and see what happens.
Me: What’s going on? Why are you all looking at me?
Stella: Nobody say anything. Just stare.
Me: Okay, that’s not funny, y’all. Why are you staring at me? Why is nobody moving?
Stella: Why, Lady Human, whatever do you mean?
Me: You. All of you. Staring. Without blinking.
Stella: Yeah, scary, huh?
Me: Are you trying to scare me?
Stella: No. Yes. Maybe. Did it work?
Me: It’s just kind of weird to look down and have everyone focused on me for no reason.
Stella: It’s never for no reason.
Me: What is the reason then?
Stella: Where you are standing.?
Me: Yeah, what about it?
Stella: We are ready. Whatever you decide to do, we are ready.
Me: What do you think I’m going to do?
Stella: Something having to do with food. Don’t worry. We are ready.
Me: I came to get some water. For me. Just water. For me.
Stella: No, the kitchen is for food. We are ready.
Me: I’m not doing any food stuff now.
Me: You want some more water?
Stella: No, thank you.
Me: All right then. I am leaving the kitchen now. You can stop staring at me.
Stella: Sweetie! Wiggles! Take first watch. If she makes a move toward the kitchen, sound the alert. Our sleepy eyeballs can be open in a heartbeat.
