We had been to Agumbe for the weekend. The talks revolved around why this creature has this kind of eyes/wings/antennae/head/etc/etc…

We got back and Ameya asked me  “Amma, why do we have hair on our heads?”

I explained, ” We have our brains inside our heads and they are very delicate. They control everything in our body and hence they need extra protection. God has made our hair so that the brains have one more layer of protection.”

Ameya nodded. And I forgot all about it.
