If you've been a citizen of the internet during the last three years and/or you're a fan of wholesome stuff, you've probably heard about everyone involved in this story—though you may not know their names.


Three years ago a woman sent a text to a number she thought belonged to her grandson. Grandma Wanda wanted to confirm Thanksgiving plans, but ended up sending the text to a wrong number.

On the other end of the texts sat a very confused (but hungry) 17-year-old named Jamal Hinton.

Jamal asked who it was, to which Grandma Wanda replied: "your grandmother." Jamal knew something wasn't right so he asked for a selfie for confirmation.

He got Grandma Wanda's selfie and responded with one of his own. Yeah... it was definitely a wrong number situation.

The two both thought it was hilarious and Wanda jokingly invited Jamal to join them for Thanksgiving anyway. The screenshots made their way to the internet and the pair had dinner together for real.

They were expecting to get a funny little story out of the situation, but what ended up happening was even better. Their families ended up absolutely adoring one another.

What started as an internet joke turned into a legitimately close friendship. They have dinner together every few months and have kept their Thanksgiving tradition alive.

This was their third year together!

Jamal shared photos from each year on Twitter.

And yes, they plan on doing it again next year because that's just what family does. And they have decided that's what they are: one big family.

Next year, though, Jamal and his girlfriend Mikaela are hopeful that they may have their own place and maybe they can host dinner instead of Wanda.

Twitter is so in love with this story of random loving friendship.









We're already looking forward to an update in 2019!

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.

Irrespective of men's sexual identity or preference, there are men who hate sports, and there are men who love musical theater. Do participating in either activity make men straight or gay?
