“Ask me questions. I love your questions.” he said.
And he loves answering them. Especially when they are about the universe, about the stars and the planets, about evolution and everyday science.
I’m baffled, most of the times. I find that I know very little about this world after all. Things that seem so obvious to me, are not so obvious.
His revelations amaze me, and sometimes, I so want to stick to my beliefs, and he so wants to stick to the facts, that we have an argument, a fight. Over science. That’s right.
But whether it leaves me amazed or mad, I learn something.
Maybe sometimes he does, too, when he asks me about non-science stuff.
And that’s how our conversations have grown. That’s how we got interested to talk more and more to each other. Questions. Answers. Amazement. Admiration.
We’ve been the best of friends a long time.
