  • My son's best friend is an awesome kid. Love him to pieces. Recently, he has a way of showing up at dinner time quite often and hitting me up for fast food if I give him a ride home from school. I thought he really liked my cooking and liked me enough to act like my kid. Today, my son informed me that both of his friend's parents are out of work and can't afford food. He's hungry.
