He lost his head.
He was very much confused when the people around him said he had not grown his head yet. Was his head not well matured enough? How would one grow a head then?
For years, he searched for an appropriate head. But there were so many to choose from! As he was growing up, he saw heads of all shapes and sizes – round, square, triangle, big, small and distorted. Then, when he started working, he saw even more heads – wooden, metallic, beautiful and rotten.
And he tried them all on. Even then, not a single head seem to fit him properly. After a while, he stopped trying to find an appropriate head and just put on one that was always readily and conveniently available, no matter how uncomfortable that head felt at times.
He still mulled over the question from time to time – how would one grow a head?
Eventually, he looked down at his own head which he put aside years ago. He decided to put it back on. Strangely, it suited him despite years of disuse; he still found it the most comfortable.
He decided to keep it.
