One day in fifth grade, my teacher was explaining to us the function of eyelashes. She explained that eye lashes were meant to keep things out of our eyes. I raised my hand and asked if eyelashes were meant to keep things out of our eyes, why didn't they keep eyelashes out of our eyes. She said she didn't know the answer to my question.
I wonder what happened to that inquisitive and too-clever-for-her-own-good girl.
I also wonder why I even remember that moment while so much of my childhood is a blur.
