Behind the Little Shop of Horrors

David: This is one of the oddest rooms we've encountered in quite a long time, and, well, we take pride in thinking we've "seen it all." The disaster quota is low here, but our displacement meters are maxing out all over the place. The initial vibe is that we are in a back room behind a florist shop, like maybe that black curtain leads to the front of the shop and mom is out there managing customers. Ew. The strange growths contained in the old giant mayonnaise containers are creepy, in a Little Shop of Horrors sort of way. Or maybe these are young Louis Pasteurs dreaming big of curing cancer or chlamydia. Still, we recommend that those go back in the kitchen somewhere (if there is a kitchen) or the laboratory down in the dungeon. Also, do some extreme knick-knack filtering. At a certain age you don't want to promote the idea that you just hang out at carnivals collecting prizes for throwing darts at balloons or ping-pong balls into tiny goldfish bowls. The fact that both men are on their phones while fucking is another bit of tragic fallout from our tech and hookup age. Whatever happened to good old romance and sex experienced with focused intensity? I know that's not an 'interiors' issue, but I couldn't help but ask. Am I right?


The Shelf

KenKay remarks:

So, like, are those a collection of Soaky Toys on the shelf in back of him? The heads screw off and there was bubble bath inside. If so, those are valuable collectibles. Probably his mom's.

Behind the Little Shop of Horrors

butchvlr remarks:

One of the first thins I noticed, almost immediately after the two Good Ol' Boys screwing their brains out on the mattress and boxspring laid on the floor of course, was the cheap ceramic skull on the lower shelf of the 4-shelfer by the door with a...what? Candle?...stuck in it. Those who tend to employ skulls as any sort of design element are those one usually is best not to spend the whole night with....just a feeling.

The framed "selfie" above the mattress and box spring is a bit off-putting as well. More so if it's not of the two men we see here but of the one guy and his significant other. It takes a certain amount of chutzpah to cheat with a photo of you and the boyfriend gazing down on the shenanigans.
