Arash’s The Young Guy Short Short Story

In The Young Guy’s short short story, Arash tells his friends this is how you write your story!

This is how to write the story of your life; this is how to live in Los Angeles; this is how to dress up; this is how talk to your parents; this is how you buy a nice watch; this is how you go on a date, because there are so many serial daters; when you are taking a walking outside, make sure you stay hydrate or else you become heat exhausted; this is how you clean your room; this is how you wear a mask; this is how you budget; this is how you smile to someone you don’t like too much; this is how you smile to someone you kindda like; this is how you smile to someone you like completely; this is how you make tea; this is how you set a table for dinner; this is how you set a table for dinner with an important guest; this is how you talk about sea food; this is how you set a table for breakfast; this is how to behave in the presence of other boys who don’t know you very well, and this way they won’t recognize immediately the deuche is coming; be sure to wash every day, even if it is with your own spit; don’t tell you love your love— she will love you, you know; do pick people’s flowers—you might find love; don’t throw eggs at people, because it might be a blackbird at all; this is how to make a salad; this is how to make bbq; how to move quick so that it doesn’t fall on you; this is how to make ends meet; always tke your time at sunday mornin showers; but what if i dont have any friends?; you mean to say that after all you are really going to be the kind of man who the baker won’t let close?

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!
