The ancient Egyptians believed there were seven substances produced by the body, and that all seven were needful for proper magic: wax; tears; spit; phlegm; sweat; semen; urine. Faeces and vomit don't count, for reasons that are beyond me. How about a story based on the seven exhalations? (breath from the nose; breath from the mouth; yawns; odour; burps; farts; spirit -- this last being telepathy).
