                  I want to go there because people laugh and do funny stuff, but I want to laugh so I can tell them jokes. If they tell me something funny, then I will laugh too, but I am in a different state and I wish I could go there in real life. I wish I can go there real hard because there are a lot of people that are laughing.

                    Er- If I was there, I would go ha-ha-hahaha ho-ho-hohoho because it makes you laugh. I wish I could be those guys so I could make them laugh and they will go like, "Hahahaha! You're funny!" I wish I could be there to celebrate that day, but I'm in a different state. Fr- That holiday was funny because it makes a lot of people laugh, but I make them laugh, too. I wish I could make everybody laugh so they will keep laughing except me because they won't make me laugh every day. I wish Erik S. was there because I would make him laugh, too and he would make me laugh too.
