Nitpicking here: these micro-shrimps, while tasty and dearly missed now, were definitely not prawns and could hardly be described as substantive. Maybe @Romanianflyer is referring to something else?...

Don't you know that, at CDG, the mere fact of taking one's temperature actually kills the virus?
