the dinosaur family says "hi"

Grocery Store - 11am.
Exchanging clementines.

A new quarter ride for whiney children...brightly colored dinosaur babies on the half-shell in the back of a jeep. Hot pink dinosaur wife in the front seat, smiling, slightly open mouth, leaning in for a kiss...

So, parents, pay a quarter, and your child will get to pretend that they are some sort of 50s dinosaur dad...complete with 50s dinosaur dad plaid pants, 50s dinosaur dad brylcreemed hair, 50 dinosaur dad sock garters. Taking the family out for a sunday drive.

Four kids in the back, all safely tucked in their shells, bottoms only slightly yolky...

Are we there yet?
