This trip was the first time Gus was old enough to appreciate the playroom, which, of course, he did in spades. In fact, he was rather taken with my parents' entire house, right down to the bathroom wallpaper:
"This is a very pretty potty. I really like to poop in here, where there are flowers and nests."
I'm sure that was the decorator's strategy, too.

"Which? Number one or number two?"
"Ha ha ha ha!"
"Oh my! I made a funny! HA HA HA HA!"
