Hey, I LOVE dandelions! Few things prettier than a meadow in spring, with that different, tender green of spring, dotted with yellow dandelions. The first dandelions always put a big smile on my face. [Image: Dandelion_Hill_by_Crossie.jpg]
Ditto that Smile but there aren't many here in my part of FL. I,used it as my example because many people don't like them & it's the most common weed that a child would pick for his friends.

I'm not even sure I'm capable of being insulted anymore. I don't even give a shit about my own opinions, why would I give a fuck about yours?

Will you demand he gets on his knees to pray for your dick?

I know, I was just kidding. I mean, I do love them (and we get heaps of them, yay! But weed is such an ugly word, isn't it? I actually wrote a tale in Portuguese about a river that wanted to go give its waters to the desert, but kinda kept giving sharing with those in need it met on its way, and one of them was a field flower, even plainer than a dandelion, the one that people would trample to avoid stepping on a real flower Laughat )

With such beautiful thoughts this must be the great dandelion derailment. Wink

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

You can also make nice whistles out of their stems. And they curl up so funny when you put them in water.

I say yes, If you know I am not a christian, then why would you even tell me you would pray. If your gonna pray then do it, but dont tell me. and dont say I need jesus either. Happy Holidays!!
