Mom: Should we get a photo of them on Santa's lap? Dad: I guess. Petey: I'm not going to actually sit on his lap. Dad: There's a Precious Memory Package with 25 photo cards, 20 8 x 10s... Petey: I'll stand to one side with an air of quiet reserve. Mom: Take off your hat, Alice. Alice: NO. Dad: Six photo mugs, six photo magnets, five photo ornaments, four photo beer koozies, a photo mousepad... Mom: Alice. Alice: No. I like the hat ON. Santa's wearing his hat. Dad: All for $49.95. Mom: Your turn, kids! Smile big! Alice: HEY! Mom: Aw, look! Grandma will love these! Dad: Dibs on a beer koozie. Petey: If you'd gotten the Precious Memory Deluxe Package, Grandma would get a tattoo. Alice: HUMPH.
