Mom: Is that the purple unicorn Viola gave you? It's cute! Petey: I know. It's awful. Mom: Petey. Sometimes people give us something awful as a gift, but we always smile and say, "Thank you." Petey: Okay. Dad: Like the floral print bow tie Mom gave me for Christmas. Mom: That you never wear. Petey: Jeez, that thing makes my eyes water.
