Serena Williams Calls Out Sister Venus for Ruining Her Sleep
Serena Williams took to her Instagram stories to tell her followers about how her sister, Venus, ruined her sleeping schedule. (You may remember our coverage of Venus’ GhostBed collection back in February.) The tennis star siblings had attended the wedding of Brooklyn Beckham, son of David and Victoria Beckham, and Nikola Peltz on April 10, according to Essentially Sports.
Serena posted one story saying how tired she was and that she was going to bed. Six hours later, she posted another story to the Meta platform explaining that her sister had kept her on the phone until 5 a.m. With a young daughter, she knew she’d be waking up early on top of it all, closing out by stating, ”Thanks, Venus. You’re going down.”

Did You Know That Baby Owls Sleep on Their Stomachs?
Nerdist reports that baby owls sleep while laying down on their tummies. Why? Because their little, adorable heads are too heavy. Situating themselves this way ensures that they don’t tumble out of a tree while taking a nap. While most owls live in hollows, making the babies safe, some do snooze on branches.
You can find photos of these adorable baby owls from owl cafes in Japan or try perusing Twitter for some shots of them out in the wild. You’re welcome.
