The letter for today is: C, where I feature care and carrot.
Mankind's' early urges included eating to sustain their body and procreating to continue the race. The men hunted for meat while the women gathered fruit and edible leaves. Because babies were born defenseless and weak, they required care for many years. Many died, which motivated the race to do everything they could to ensure their offspring survived.
I've heard that the large heads and slow movements of a toddler rouse the need to care in the male and female alike. Of course, the care given depends on the individual's ability.
I used to give my children carrot sticks to munch when they came home from school. They'd run to the park and I'd congratulate myself on the quality of my care in regard to their nutrition.
Later, I laughed out loud to discover they used to chew the carrots up and spew the pieces at their friends as ammunition.
