A half-hour before I set out for my board exams, I began feeling nauseous.

I became fearful of missing the exam.

Mom was at work. Dad was home that day.

We didn’t have nausea medication at home, and the pharmacies were closed.

Suddenly, Dad remembered his mother’s remedy. He grated gingerroot, then added salt and lemon.
