After 34 years of heating my house with wood, I'm having a gas furnace installed. This week, I was showing two guys where I wanted the gas line buried. In the process, we had to walk across what I call my "lawn," which is solid dandelions.
"Please don't walk on the dandelions," I said, only half kidding, because they were so beautiful. "I've got a good crop this year."
One of the guys, probably thinking I had fought the Dandelion Wars and lost, said, "Once they get started, it's hard to get rid of them."
"Get rid of them? I planted them!"
