“Did you have red Tabasco sauce with your last meal?”  Joy asked me as my husband and I were driving her from San Francisco to Chico, California.

I was surprised by her question.  I did have red Tabasco sauce the night before, but not more that 4 drops.  How could Joy have smelt it? “Yes”, I said, “but it was such a minuscule amount”.

“I can smell it” she commented laughing.

The 3-hour car trip from San Francisco to Chico, California was off to a good start.  Joy was definitely an impressive super smeller.
