Dear Unknown Seattle-Area Resident

At future outdoor family-friendly events, please keep your beer-drinking to the designated “beer garden.” If this is too much to handle, please remember not to leave your “almost” finished beer cup on a chair for my toddler to find. He is the little pumpkin-headed boy who spent a good portion of the day filling a bucket with dirt and pouring it directly into his mouth. I prefer the dirt to your backwashed yeasty sludge.

Thanks. Have a great night.

Amen on dirt.

Carter, my Word of Wisdom Problem child at the tender age of 4, ingested Uncle B.C.'s years-old beer from an almost empty can on the patio and wine from Grannie's wine glass ON THE SAME TRIP. Grrrrr.

I hate litter, and litter that's harmful to others is the worst.

Oh gross! Poor Magoo! I can't imagine the face he made after slugging that down! Hopefully you grabbed it before he really drank any!!

Ugg! Some people's lack of consideration for others is just awful. It is like our local neighborhood park and certain individuals who smoke. They very carefully get the full distance from their own kids but don't mind standing two feet within mine and light up! Grrrr!

He downed whatever was in there. When we grabbed it from him, he moved right on to an old soda can but we were quicker the second time.

Sean picked up someones left over half full Margarita at a neighborhood pool party this past summer. Someone just set it down and left; apparently it was just too far to drop in the trash. He slept really well that night.

When my sons were Magoo's age, they would INEVITABLY go for the half-finished beer with the cigarette butt floating in it.

I don't know which part freaked me out the most.
