“I’m not going in there!” Bobby yelled.

“They’re plants,” Mom said.

“They’re carnivorous plants. They’ll eat me.”

“Where did you learn carnivorous?”

“I Googled it.”

“How did you know to Googled it?”

“The documentary. Little Shop of Horrors. Jerry showed it to me.”

“I’m going to feed, your big brother, Jerrold Jr. to Audrey Jr.”

“Can I watch?”

“Don’t be morbid.”

“But . . .”

“Keep it up and I’ll bring you back to the brier patch where I found you.”

“Does that mean I get to meet Brer Rabbit?”

Mom glared at him.

“I’ll stop talking now.”

“Good idea.”
