Overheard Conversations: Dandelions

"It's hard getting old."
"How's that?"
"I said, 'it's hard getting old.'"
"No, I heard you, I mean what brings this on?"
"Looking at how young the neighborhood has become. It just depresses me."
"Wishing you were young again?"
"Yeah... The warm spring air makes me pine for younger days. It feels like there should be some way to reverse time. Like maybe if I could play a game of kick-the-can it might somehow restore my youth."
"Ha ha ha! That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard."
"What, you're mad now?"
"Look, I'm sorry, ok?"
"...You know what I hate most about growing old?"
"Losing my hair."
"Blow me."
