On the importance of being an engineer.

Mummy! I made a mask this afternoon – come and see!

[It’s after school and I am picking her up. I go over to the work table, which features an elaborate paper mask.]

It’s a cat…how neat!

Yes, yes – but that’s not the best bit.


Clearly, the best bit is this part. [She turns the mask over and indicates a feather taped to the inside]

I designed that part first because it is important to be comfortable. Obviously, the feather protects my forehead.
