I have a girl friend who I met through an Iranian charity organization that I belong to. Her name is Homeyra. She is the happiest person on earth. She is always in a good mood, smiling, and spreading her happiness to those around her. Her joviality is simply infectious, I swear, she walks into a room and completely elevates the mood of those around her. She is very likable and personable, Persian adjective that best defines her is khodemooni.
A couple of months ago we were sitting next to each other at a fundraiser event and had the opportunity to chat and giggle together while she greeted the attendees and took their tickets while I sold raffle tickets. Low and behold she is from Shiraz and you wouldn’t believe the excitement when I wooed her with my fine Shirazi dialect skills! In fact she was so impressed with me that now she wants to be my best friend! NOT! I only know a couple of things and the first thing that comes to mind is you say “haa” instead of “yes.” I have no fine Shirazi skills, none! I only like sour food!
