Best friend

"Let's go, Johnny! Grandpa is waiting for us!" "Not now mom, how many times should I tell you?" "Johnny, please! Stop with this nonsense." "But mom, he is my best friend!

I even brought with me reinforcement to catch your attention. Leave the damned sky alone. I am not a freaking bird. Pick me already, you blind schmuck!" Suddenly, the man turned wondering what his wife had reincarnated as. .
