planet

I can't get my mind on anything else, I'm sorry.

Driving to lunch today we went past this patch of land by the side of the road that was about covered in yellow dandelions. Someone made a comment about how lousy our city was at taking care of weeds. I was like, "Hey, they're flowers, right?" Someone else answered that they might be flowers, but they'd take over and suffocate anything else that tried go grow there. The way I figure, if there's enough of them to do that, they might as well go ahead. This is Kansas. Majority rules. I don't want my taxpayer dollars going to fund efforts to grow help soft grass survive a dandelion invasion; that's just... not natural.
