It seems that did not work, a**hole.

I did not mean anything by it. Mikey knows it.

Toma. He kept an eye on it all day. You keep it.

- Yes.

- Mom, I need to talk to you.

Damn it.

- Do not go. - The children agreed.


I told you not to leave the tap in the kitchen.


Come, let's have breakfast.

Faith Jenny.


Who is Jenny?

She's my new friend.

How cool. Where is she?

On the wall!

She may also be hungry. Let's go!


- Are you there? - Mother! What the hell!

Burned something in the kitchen?

Close the damn door!

What's that smell? Rotten.

Buddy, do me a favor and obey your mother, all right?
