Me and my dad went outside on the lawn Sunday, which is covered in dandelions right now. There was a heavy breeze, so I plucked a dandelion that had turned into a white puff of parachute seeds and blew on it. The breeze pushed the seeds towards my dad, and he tried to dodge them as they clung to his clothes. Like a little kid again, I picked up more and blew, angling it so more would blow on him.
He tried to blow some at me, but the wind drove them back into him instead, and I laughed. He then tried to throw the stems at me like little spears. He was a bad aim and missed me each time. But I retaliated, and my dandelion stalk spears hit their mark with each throw. Who says a woman can’t be a great spear thrower? 😉
No matter what age, we can have fun moments when we’re like a kid again, and I think that’s special.
