Fact of the Matter

In dramatic monologue Fact of the Matter, ARASH complains to his brother about how he hasn’t called their ailing Mother.

ARASH:  She’s been sick in the hospital for four days and NOW you call me to get the number???  What’s wrong with you?  This is your Mother, your Mother!  You have ONE Mother Radffar…ONE.  You should be ashamed of yourself.  

  I don’t give a shit where you were or what excuses with your phone you want to give me…the fact of the matter is that you knew about it DAYS ago and you waited until now to call me back.  No, no, stop, stop with your bullshit excuses Ben, okay?  I’m done with it….the number is 310-272-0849.  Did you take it down?  Call her NOW!

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
