  12. Reminded me of a story I read as a child about a princess who told her father that she loves him as much as salt . He gets angry but later at another juncture is forced to plead for somesalt when he is offered nothing but sweet things. It's the wedding of his estranged daughter who says ' now do u know why I said salt ' :)
