Scenes From A Frankfurt Hotel Room

We're in a family hotel room in Frankfurt, Germany. It's late, and we're all snuggled warm in our beds. The kids are delighted to be in bunk-beds at this hotel. The grown-ups are happy to have a bed to themselves.

At some point after the lights go out, the subject of Little Shop Of Horrors comes up. Owen asks what kind of plant the outer-space alien was.

Bob: It's kind of like a Venus Fly Trap.

Owen: Did you just say Penis Fly Trap!!!


Owen: Giggle giggle giggle

Bob: Is that like when you're in a big hurry, and you zip up your pants too quick...

Owen: Giggle giggle giggle

Eleanor: Boys are weird!

Brenna: I thought you were asleep!

No matter what their age, two boys in a room late at night turns into a slumber party, and if you're the Redpath's, at some point someone's going to start singing.

"Little Shop. Little Shop Of Horror - Oh! Oh-Oh Oh-Hoooh!"

Charlie Jensen: Is it the frank or the beans?
Ted: I don't know, both I guess.
Warren: [from outside] Franks and Beans! Franks and Beans!

Words of Wisdom: Always go with Button Flys.
