Ah, I would totally go, but I promised the guys in South Korea that I’d play in their tournament. Bad timing.

Is this a joke, Dennis? You know this is the day before my birthday. Come on man, you told me you’d be able to make it. My mom’s making spare ribs and we’re renting a moon bounce. I thought I was your favorite little man. Since when did this Kim guy become your new best friend? Pick up your phone, Dennis!
