Hey Mom, What's a Bordello?

Is it like the cough shot we got before we went to Camp Lisa?

No Duncan, you're thinking of bordetella, you got a kennel cough vaccination.

A bordello is, well, ummmm, a place where ladies of the evening made money.

There were many individual bedrooms, and each lady had her own room.

A red light was lit on the outside of the building so that gentleman callers knew when the ladies were available.

Mom! Did you guys stay at the bordello?

Yes Duncan, we stayed at the bordello. Your Momma K even met a very nice gentleman.


Duncan, Duncan, not so loud, it's OK. The Red Garter has not been a bordello since the mid-1940's. Now it's a bed and breakfast.

We rented a room, much like a hotel, and ate incredibly yummy cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

It was a very nice place.

Phew, I feel so much better now.
