I went into a convenience store today to buy a drink and as i was checking out i realized the checkout guy was Iranian--so i started speaking Farsi with him and as i took out my card to pay, he said "dokhtaram, nemishe" and i thought he was taarofing with me so i was like "nahhhh toro khoda etc etc" and he was like "oh...manzooram bood ke cart ghabool nemikoneem". ABEROOM RAFT. MLIP.

Today, I was talking to one of my relatives in Iran. After about a minute, she asked me if my mom was there. I told her she was out and realized it takes forever to say bye. "Salam Beresoonin" "Bashe be Mamanam Migam Zangzadeen" "Na merci, chizi nemikham az Iran" "Ok, merci" "Khodafez" "Na merci motmaynam chizi nemikham" "Bashe chizi khastam migam" "Na yadam nemire be mamanam zangm"...

Watching my brother being raised has infromed me about the persian way of parenting.
1. Learn how to say 'Maman and Baba'
2. Learn how to use your fork to stragetically get as much 'polo' in your spoon.
3. Tarof, Tarof, Tarof.

Today, I realized that tarofing is in our blood when my one year old cousin taroffed his blueberries and made sure everyone ate one before he did. MLIP

I was at my wife's friends none persian party and served myself the last piece of cake on the tray. Just then host exclaimed how there is no more cake left for a new guest that just arrived. I offered mine and she asked if I was sure. I taroffed and sure enough she grabbed my plate. MLIP

Today I went to my sefeed friends house. When I got there, I found out that they were grilling burgers. They offered me to have some. I tried taroffing and I said that I had just eaten a big lunch when I really hadn't. Then they told me that they would eat lunch without me while I eat a few crackers in the corner of the room. I was really starving. MLIP

Emrooz my madar and pedar got me a gift for my tavahloht (birthday). I taroffed and said it was too big of a gift. My madar then replied "natars pas meedeem". She plans on returning the camera after I use it. MLIP.

Whenever my mommy and khale go shopping together, and it comes to paying, the biggest tarof show you will EVER see takes place. Once my mom even told me to take my khale's wallet when we were out shopping. MLIP

I think it is very rude when you start taroffing something (just because your Persian) and people take something, the worst part is they take all your food and you have nothing. So sometimes 'ghalat bokonam tarof konam. MLIP
