Avalon's Thoughts, a whirling top
Blurry image of Bethany, reading a book


This is a quick Happy Birthday to one of my bestest friends from forever. Bethany has been a friend since middle school and we quickly declared ourselves sisters and other halves. I’ll forever have fond memories of us walking home from school, endless hours each lying on a couch in my or her living room while reading books, getting ready for school dances, going on late night runs to walmart in full cosplay costume, and the many many more shenanigans we’ve gotten up to over the years.

We never got me riding at the barn she rode at because I continually forgot to get a letter from my mother oking it. We never tallyed up who had spent more on the ice cream, fast food, or other shenanigans we covered for each other because we decided it’d all even out in the end. We stayed friends through distance and drama, and each supported each other in finding what we wanted to do in our lives.

I was honoured to be fire safety for her recently as she and her wife April had their wedding dresses set aflame, still wearing them as part of their wedding. And her having introduced me to April several years prior definitely set me on the path into circus, for which I will always be grateful.

Come and read on my couch anytime Beferny,

with love
