Older boys often ask me to teach them “some bad words in your language.” at first, I politely refused. My refusal merely increased their determination, so I solved the problem by teaching them phrases like man kharam which means “I'm an idiot.”
This is a hardship because the father didn't want to teach the boys any bad words but he solved it by teaching them bad words towards themselves. Its funny but also hard because he wants to the right thing. He does the not so right thing though.
A lot of people ask me how to say bad words in Spanish and I always tell them how to say, “I'm dumb” I can relate to him because I do that to people who want to say bad words in a different language. I'm teaching them a lesson and they will see how its like to get hurt by a bad word.
Have you Asked someone to teach you a bad word in a different language, if so did the word they teach you backfire on you?
A few months later, my father and I drove to the bus stop together. Like any other child going to overnight camp for the first time, I immediately regretted my decision. My father did his best to calm me by telling me storied of his first year in America as a Fulbright scholar at Texas A&M.
To Firoozeh this was hard because she had never gone to overnight camp before. Her dad, Kazem was just trying to calm her down. The storied her dad gave her just gave her another message “I did not want to go to camp”
I have a connection because I went to camp for the first time in 4th grade and I was nervous, but my parents weren't there to calm me down. It was a school camping trip. I got over being scared because they made me go on a zip line and that was so fun.
Have you ever gone on a camping trip with or without your parents, if so how was it, did you have fun?
