"She's been making puns (bad ones and good ones) for as long as I can remember," Sasha said of Michelle. "I'm convinced she can definitely out-pun anyone."

Like a good daughter, Sasha has schooled Michelle in the art of memes. Michelle is totally into it.

"Ever since she found out what a meme was, she's been having way too much fun," Sasha said. "She always gets really excited when she makes one and sends them to me. It's honestly the cutest thing."

On the day of the solar eclipse, Michelle was getting annoyed with all the warnings to wear eclipse glasses. So, she was inspired to create a meme about it. It is so pure.

"She ended up making the joke as a response to all the warnings," Sasha said. "She was very proud of it and decided to turn it into a meme."

Sasha decided to post her mom's meme on Twitter, to see if she could make it actually go viral. It worked! It has since been retweeted more than 90,000 times!
