Question 1: Why did the traveller’s mouth water?

Answer: The poor traveller was walking through the streets of a town. He had little to eat for two days and he had spent his last penny. All that remained in his pockets was a piece of dry bread. As he passed by an eating- house, he saw several people sitting around the fire, eating and drinking. On the fire, there was a large cooking-pot, full of meatballs giving out a delicious smell that made his mouth water.

Question 2: Why was the eating-house keeper angry?

Answer: In the eating-house, when the poor traveller saw a large cooking-pot, full of meatballs giving out a delicious smell, he took the piece of dry bread out of his pocket and held it over the pot. After a minute or two, he slowly ate the bread and tried to imagine how it would have tasted with the meatballs. This was only by smelling the meatballs. The eating-house keeper got angry when he saw the man doing this.
