How to call two .makeText() and .show() in Toast

I am attempting to complete the ToastTest.java challenge but cannot figure out how to call upon the previous Toast.

ToastTest.java
Toast allDoneToast = Toast.makeText(this, "All done!", Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
allDoneToast.show();
Toast secondToast = Toast.makeText(this, "YAY!", Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
allDoneToast.show();
secondToast.show();

No need to call the first Toast again. What the challenge is after is seeing if you can chain methods.

// 1. Don't bother with a reference. This Toast will only be used here.
// 2. Call the class method makeText to make a new Toast.
// 3. Call the show method on the object makeText is returning. 
Toast.makeText(this, "Method chaining", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

Thanks This helped a ton.
