|If you missed the original Holiday Conversations post you can check it out here. The following are actual conversations from the 2009 holiday season.
Sister: I know what you can get me for Christmas this year. But, you'll have to order it online.
MA Fat Woman: Well, what is it?
Sister: It's an insulated cup. They cost 10 bucks each.
MAFW: Whoa, that's a lot!
Mom: Want to see what I want for Christmas?
MAFW: Sure, what is it?
Mom: It's called a napsack. It's right here in the ABC catalog.
MAFW: Why do you need a backpack? Are you going camping or back to school?
Mom: NO! It's not a backpack, it's a napsack. You take it with you when you are travelling and lay it on the bed or wherever you are sleeping. It even has room for a pillow. That way you don't have to touch the blankets or bed spreads; they can be really gross, you know.
Brother: What are you getting mom for Christmas?
MAFW: Not sure. She showed me something in the ABC catalog...
Brother: Oh God! Not the ABC catalog again.
MAFW: I found out what mom wanted for Christmas?
MAFW: It's something like a backpack, but they call it a napsack.
Sister: Oh Lord! It's not from the ABC catalog, is it?
MAFW: Sister wants some kind of insulated cup for Christmas. It costs ten bucks.
Mom: Whoa, that's a lot! Insulated cup, huh? You three kids are nuts about your drinking cups.
MAFW: I looked, but couldn't find it anywhere. It must be in one of those specialty shops at the mall; although she said she saw it online.
Mom: Hmmm, did you check the ABC catalog...?
