Kazem Mollaie




















When I was a kid, I wished I couldn’t see well to be able to wear glasses …
And now I am a man who wears glasses …
In 1981 I was born in Heshmatie hospital in a city named “Green Land” (Sabzevar) …

I have 3 date of birth … In my ID it is written "20th of September" , I was born on the "3rd of December" , but I like "30th of January" the most .

When my shoes’ size was 18, I went to school and my father died at the same time …I have long nails and I don’t have so much hair on my head … The size of my trousers is 36 right now and about my shoes it has become 42 …

I really like the smelling of heater, carpentry, gas, spring, pipe, new book, the city of Booshehr, the wet feeling of a flower house that stimulate your appetite and also the smelling of a Siv soap.

I sneeze immediately When I chew a green Orbit gum with the Eucalyptus flavor… and when I sneeze I become so excited and I believe that I am still alive …

On Fridays definitely I eat the sunflower seeds and on Friday evening I am really depressed. I should mention you just to buy the "Tabarok" tomato paste that never mildews.

There is a big space between these two front teeth in my mouth and there are also two black spots on my back that makes so many people tell me that I will be so blest and rich in the future !

I have so much hair on my wrist but I don’t have a watch … My nose is like a cucumber and I think there is a mistake in my ear shape !

My favorite food is “Ghormesabzi” accompanied with salt shaker, and when I weighed myself on a boy scale in the pavement, I was 79 kilos … Some years ago a tailor did a favor and told me my height with her old meter:177 cm .

My blood type is +B and I present my clean blood to charity 3 times to let some people know what a nice person I am .
In the end : I am so pride that made me crazy,but for sure I haven’t killed anyone in my life … I am just a man with glasses that unfortunately like the glasses just to see better !
