Mavis Ah Mavis!

30 Apr

Mavis confided in me recently that she was considering retiring from the circus.  It’s not that she doesn’t like being a hippo trainer. She loves Gertrude!  And (of course) she loves the attention.  As you all know she is a huge fan of panties.  So, she isn’t leaving the circus on that accord.   The truth is that she is finally feeling her age.  I know what you are all thinking.  Oh my God!  This can’t be happening.  I felt the same way.  When our Miss Mave came to me and said that she was even pondering the thought of leaving, I said, “No way!  You will die in the circus!”  She looked at me with those piercing blue eyes and I knew that she was angry.  But the truth of the matter is that she is flesh and blood a circus gal.  She was born in a tent.  She will die in a tent.  It’s just a fact.  Maybe she doesn’t like it, but it’s a fact.  Besides, she loves the circus and she can’t deny it.  Everyone here is like her family.  Even if the knife thrower and the mime aren’t related to her, she feels some kind of deep connection to them.  Edie Mae and she have developed a strong connection throughout their years together in the circus.  Hopefully they continue to find ways to cause trouble within the tent walls.  Until next time… Yours truly, Juniper
