16/365 Flying helicopters

What descriptive names did you give items when you were a kid?

These have been and always will be "helicopters" in my mind. That's what we called them, the maple seeds that would spiral to the ground in the spring.

We had fun gathering handfuls of them, then tossing them up overhead to send them flying again.

Maybe that's the same kind of fun that makes people in movies always toss money into the air? It's always seemed like a silly act to me, but having never been in that situation before, maybe it's just their childlike delight coming through.

Anyone want to give me a stack of money so I can try it myself?

Camera: Canon 40D, 1/60s, f/4 at ISO 1250 at about 8:15 p.m. in shade.
