As we’re waiting around for our break-down materials at SOFA last night, the dealer across the aisle calls my attention to a bit of international hanky-panky brewing behind the scenes.
Apparently her young Herr Silbenrein has been making eyes at our gaggle of young Akester girls.
Until the fair closed, he and his friends have been a bit timid to make the move across the aisle. Now with time running out, the young rakes are clearly emboldened to act.
Silbenrein sidles up to the youngest Akester girl and begins exposing his little Vogel. Disarmed by his advances, the helpless maid stares blankly into space.
Meanwhile, Silbenrein’s buddy is all over the other sisters, showing off his big crown. How do you say “papagallo” in German?
Just when I think that the demure Scottish damsels are about to rebuff this crass gang of German lotharios, a suddenly brazen Akester sister appears with some bait of her own.
Clearly SOFA has ended in the nick of time.
PS. Nadania, it was a JOY to meet you and your Ribkas.
