    A pistil is to shoot people, and a stamen is a kind of quarterstaff.

    Can you pet the petals?

    I always thought it was a buck and a quarter staff.

    And shouldn't you make sure they aren't wildflowers before you pet them?

    They bow down to my presence(at least when I kneel on them).

    Didn't I tell you I always weed them by hand?

    Isn't that kind of rigidity unhealthy?

    It certainly makes life hard, that's for sure.

    But if you're a firm believer in something, who are we to judge?

    I agree completely.

    Do you have to walk a mile in my shoes, or can you just live and let live?
