Dandelion fluffballs are fun.

Did you know that being superstitious brings bad luck?

... that being said, if you can blow all the seeds off a perfect dandelion fluffball, you 1) have strong lungs, and 2) can wish for something.

Darn, there's seeds left on this one. Pic: Darn, there's seeds left on this one. There's tricks to it:
1) don't pick underripe dandelion fluffballs. Wait until they're all round and see-through.
2) don't pick them on a cloudy day; in dry weather the seeds are more likely to fly off.
3) blow from below, not from the top or the side.
4) if you didn't manage it on the first try, go for another fluffball. And another, and another, and another. There's lots.

But most importantly, remember to blow your dandelion seeds onto the neighbor's garden.
