Reading off the pain

Lesson 1: Ugly is just a useless adjective

“Abbas, I’m so sorry, it was my fault that I decided to go to the bathroom on my own and fell on the ground. I’m so sorry, I know I look very ugly right now.”

“Abbas, can I pay you for our reading sessions? I don’t want you to waste time reading books with me for free.”

“You could only pay me if we finish the book and end up watching the movie together.”
