  4. Ah! Reminds me of a story from child hood days.. dunno if you know it.. its about a fisher woman who gets caught in a storm and temporarily stays in a rich man’s house. Even the servant quarters is opulent.. but she finds she cannot sleep.. so she puts her empty fish basket on her face and sleeps to glory πŸ™‚ she missed the smell of it πŸ˜€
