Drabble #57

Photo prompt: dandelion puff

It got to the point where I hated photos of dandelion seeds floating gracefully into the air. I never learned how to make them do that. I spent years as a kid puffing on the fluffy white weeds, only to find that, despite my breath, those seeds were hell-bent on staying. Or, they would all fly off at once, making a quickly-dispersing cloud rather than a lithe trail up into the air. Eventually, I got so frustrated that I just pulled the seeds off and tossed them in the air. Not the desired effect, either, but it helped my frustration.
