The mean crocodile (丷) is visiting Maud Younger (y) in the space station's bathroom (Ø4) and asks for her help. Somehow he lost all his energy. Maud knows what to do and pulls out a bit of Alpinia oxyphylla (益), an eight ball (八), a flute (一), and a shallow bowl (皿). She crushes the eight ball and the ginger in the bowl with her flute and while doing so, she tells the crocodile that this will be the ingredients for a tea which will be very beneficial (益) to him. It will not only restore his vigor, but also increase his intellect. - Mnemonic by Matthias, about 1 year ago | add a painting
