Open Tomorrow

12 May

“Orlee,” my Tunisian colleague called my attention, “What is ‘bukas’?”
“Open,” I answered.
“Open? What is tomorrow?”
“Bukas,” I answered with a different intonation.
“The same? Very confusing.”
“Bûkás is open, Būkàs is tomorrow,” I told him.
“I get it… Bukas bukas…. Open tomorrow.”
