Dandelions

I remember when I used to think dandelions were really pretty flowers. My sibs and I would pick dandelions for our mom...of course, she feigned pleasure :D I still think dandelions are pretty. I don't care that they're weeds. I STILL LOVE THEM. That's all for today. ahem.

That is so true. When I was a kid, I adored them. Then something happened. Societal norms about what dandelions are influenced my ideas of how pretty they are, especially when they came sprouting up in hordes in my backyard in the spring. It's embarrassing when I think about it.

But...remember when we got a bit older, and we used to play a weird game where we'd surprise another person by rubbing the dandelion over their hand, thus temporarily staining their palm? :-) Good times...
