We all have one. A photo of ourselves as a child on the big guy’s lap. For some, it was what they’d been waiting for all year. They were finally in control. They had Santa’s undivided attention and the opportunity to spill all of their wordly desires and then follow it up with a lie about how good they’d been all year.
For others, words cannot describe the sheer terror they felt at being deserted by their parents and being plopped on a fat stranger’s lap with camera bulbs flashing all around.
Thankfully, in this case, a picture tells 1000 words.
Make sure you pay attention to the Santas…Even now, at 31, some of them would frighten me. In my opinion, if your beard is made of a pile cotton balls that someone has glued together, you are not going to fool anyone into believing you are the real thing. Spend a few extra bucks and get the good beard.
And just in case you were wondering…Some of us also have mall photos of ourselves with other celebrities. And it doesn’t appear that I’m the least bit scared. I’m very proud of this one…mullet and all.
