Are you dreaming of coconuts? I am so certain you must have dreamt about coconuts at least once this week. According to Thai's believe (well the people we know anyhow), drinking coconut milk (not coconut cream) will cleanse you of the fat tissues surrounding you at the moment, it will also give you more hair. So your mother have been knocking back coconut after coconut for a few days now.
I think she is so committed to drinking them, not because she hopes that you will have better and cleaner skin, but the main focal point is really the 'hair'. I am telling you it is really the 'hair', by the time you can make sense of this world, my head may resemble an egg (you can rest assure that I am doing everything in my power to avert this).
