    What do ducks love about the 4th of July?

    Fire quackers! :rofl: :lmao:

    Where do sheep go on vacation?

    Why does a seagull fly over the sea?

    Because if it flew over the bay, it would be a bagel. ;)

    Life updates: My internship was amazing and I had a great time! I got home on Saturday, but I've been sick and trying to catch up on a lot of missed sleep. I'm also returning to semi-professional ballet, hence the 3PM event time on Saturdays. I'm hoping to be back to usual soon and catching up on all of the things. :D See you all around! You guys rock. <3
