Chapati Staple


Have been eating Chapati for lunch for 3 weeks,
went to buy the Indian flatbread today,
the familiar face of the cook was not there?
disappointed a bit, still ordered one.
Although language barrier,
still asked the unfamiliar cook why the old cook wasn't here today?
After a few words exchanged plus an additional sign language,
we just couldn't understand each other.
A few minutes later the old cook's wife came back,
exchanged with friendly smiles,
but didn't get to ask her where the cook was,
as she was in a rather low mood.
