My friend Pavlo wakes up in the morning. Not being fully awake he immediately starts to read the Bible. From time to time he takes his eyes off the book, stops for a moment and tells out loud: “Dear God, please give us big and reach wisdom”.

On seeing me and many girls he smiles, comes up to every of them with a compliment: “You are very beautiful today”, “You blossom like a red rose. You have to believe in this”, “You are a goddess today”.
