How to make an awful first impression
Uncle: My dad, who I've told you owns a publishing company in Tehran, happens to be visiting; I'll introduce you two. This'll be great; you wanting to write and my dad, who transelates books into Farsi, you guys will get along great.
*My uncle beacons his fahter*
Uncle: Dad, this is Carlos, he is a great author.
*Uncle conviniently leaves as his father and I exchange greetings*
Uncle's Father: I look forward to transelating you books to Farsi. I take it you are writing many short stories, and submitting them to contests?
Me: Well, you see, I don't really like writing short stories. I am focusing on making novels, a few of which i want to make series.
Uncle's Father (smile now vanishing): You don't say. That's quite interesting; I find short stories to be the best type of reading. I trust you have only the A's in school?
Me: Not exactly, you see (is about to explain AP and Honors courses)-
Uncle's Father: Unacceptable, you must increase.
Me: I have been trying me best to
Uncle's Father: There is no trying, you must achieve, or you must fail (Yoda?). What countries, social issues and international relations are your books about?
*I am about to make a total ass out of myself by answering that I only write Sci-Fi and Fantasy when luckily, our conversation is interrupted by an interloper*
I made some Aquabats Super Show Gifs for everyone...
