I said: “Your cap is nice.”
He smiled.
I said: “Did you make it.”
He nodded.
I said: “Can I take a photo?”
He stopped work, and removed the cap from his head.
I said: “No, no, keep it on, and keep working.”
He said: “Will you take half a kilo instead of a quarter? I’ll give it to you at less.”
I said: “No, I can eat only a quarter.”
He said: “Please.”
I said: “No.”
He said: “You didn’t take a photo of the jackfruit. Wait, I’ll split it open a bit more. Then, you’ll be able to see it.”
I said: “Thanks. What’s your name?”
He said: “Soeb.”
I said, “Thanks, Soeb. And bye.”
