"A dandelion is the perfect reminder of how something so dangerous can look so good."

Two entirely subjective terms:

dangerous
looking good

but I guess if I were a driveway...

if a dandelion hit on you, would you be flattered, or say, "ugh, you're a weed!"?

Marc said...

I'd think "what kind of social hierarchy has created these feelings of flattery and rejection? Is this Godly? How do we, as believers act in a manner that says that we value even weeds as beloved creations? How do we invite dandelions into our fellowship community with the goals of spiritual growth and discipleship? How do we cultivate respect for our fellow creations and subversive towards the cultural attitude that calls them "weeds," while still being honest and forthright about our feelings that are leading us either into or away from committed, marriage-minded relationship?"

Dude, Christian dating advice sucks.

I'm going back to bed.

I'm going out on a limb and say pretty much no female would say dandelions are the "hot" flower, you never give dandelions on Valentines day, you don't see a bride walking down the aisle with a bouquet of dandelions......but if a dandelion hit on me I would smile and be courteous

Yeah, dandelions are pretty much the worst-looking flowers ever.

Sabai said...

yes, but it LOOKS like a flower, i guess.

ok, bad metaphor. I was trying to find a symbolic jezebel. any other ideas?
