Translation

A man said to his wife “ We are going hunting to shoot something and bring it back. Cook some food and keep it aside for me.” So the woman cooked the food, set it aside, went into the shade of a tree and went to sleep. Then two children came along and took the food away and ate it. When the man came home at night there was no food for him.
