(75 word short story published on Paragraph Planet on Thursday 15-Jun-2014)

Mornings, Geoff reads the reports, updates the chart and learns to say 'hello', 'goodbye' and 'thank you' in that day's languages.

Afternoons, he tracks down ingredients for that night's cuisine, perhaps khoresh, chorba or kedjenou.

Evenings, exotic smells drifting through from the kitchen, Geoff settles down to watch the matches.

Tomorrow, he'll find an excuse to visit that Iranian corner shop, the one with the smiling lady.

After all, now he knows a little Persian.
