Dear In-Laws' Neighbor,
Please pick the gorgeous tangerines you have growing in your backyard. Do you know what those would be worth up North? Stop letting them fall to the ground and rot!
Thank you for hosting us for a week, and for sharing the bounty of your yard with us. We enjoyed the pineapple (the cactus fruit not so much). Maybe next time I'll take an aloe plant transplant home with me.
Thank you for being such good travelers and such well-behaved visitors, even though two of you were suffering from some sort of stomach virus. I'm sure Grandpa forgives you for vomiting in his car and for leaving him with mounds of extra-stinky trash.
Dear Lady on the Plane,
Way to cough and hack and cough our entire flight and not cover your mouth. Even my almost-three-year old knows to cough into his elbow. I blame you for my children getting sick. Not because I have any proof, but because I feel like it.
Dear US Airways,
I know times are hard, but requiring your passengers to PAY ADDITIONAL MONEY for water, coffee, tea, or juice? Really? How are we supposed to distract children on the plane without plastic cups, ice, and little bags of pretzels? Also, shilling for MasterCard during the flight is just embarrassing, and I guarantee the flight attendants hate doing it.
Dear Lowry Park Zoo,
Thanks (?) for letting our children feed your animals. It seemed a bit dangerous to me, but they were fine.
Dear Allergy Mom and Allergic Kid,
Thank you so much for hosting us at the zoo. It was lovely to meet you both!
I realize you are learning to walk, but please stop hitting your head on sharp furniture corners. Mama's heart can't take it.
