A painting of me

In the style of a traditional Iranian mother, she would pretend, for five days, that I did not exist; thaw on the sixth; and on the seventh have forgotten the episode entirely, convinced that my rude friends, who didn’t even say Salam to her when they came over, were responsible for ruining my manners.

  1. LOL. That’s my mom!!!

    better remember to always say salam to my parents. that’s the worse thing you could do, not saying hi! there will be hell to pay! 8o|

  2. I always do; that is why I am the greatest boyfriend in the world.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
