672. You hear a knock on your front door and it’s the Easter Bunny! He says that he’s extremely tired and could use some motivation to keep delivering Easter baskets around the world. What do you say to the Easter Bunny to give him the pep talk he needs?

673. Describe the most colorful Easter egg you’ve ever seen. What are all the different colors represented and how would you describe the pretty pattern if there is one?
