A Modern Guy’s Best Friend


Brady was checking instagram on his smartphone when his friend Austin burst into the room.

“I need a wingman,” announced Austin. His eyes were red, like he’d been crying.

“What happened? Why didn’t you text me?”

“That’s why I need a wingman. I had a bad breakup.”

“With Diane?”

Austin rolled his eyes. “You think I’d be freaking out this much over a girl? I broke my phone.”

Brady reeled. “Sorry, man. I didn’t know. What happened?”

“I dropped it in the toilet taking a selfie.”

“Fried it?”

“Totally. I feel, like, so empty,” said Austin.

“Can’t live without one.”

“I know. I called for Siri, but she’s gone.” Austin choked up.

“Be strong, man,” said Brady.

“Siri was my one truest love. Spent more time with her than anyone.”

“So you’re gonna get her back?” asked Brady.

“Don’t know. Everything’s changed since I got her. It’s been 9 months.”

“How many new phones came on the market since then?” asked Brady.

“I know, right?”

Brady put his hand on Austin’s shoulder. “Never fear. I’ll help you through this wilderness.”

“Thanks, man. You’re the next best thing to a smartphone,” said Austin.

A tear welled up in Brady’s eyes. “That’s the best thing ever said to me.”
