MEAGHAN AND TALULAH


IT MAY SOUND REALLY STRANGE, BUT WHENEVER I MAKE SOMETHING, I IMAGINE THIS WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE FOR IT. FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN I CREATED THESE SLIPPERS AND PHOTOGRAPHED THEM, I IMAGINED THIS WHOLE FLOWERY TALE. WHAT IF A GIRL NAMED MEAGHAN, WAS A BRIDESMAID, AND EARLIER THAT MORNING HER BEST FRIEND TALLY (WHICH HAPPENS TO BE SHORT FOR TALULAH), GAVE HER THESE HAND MADE SLIPPERS AS A GIFT. SHE'D WEAR THEM AROUND A BUSTLING HOUSE, ALL DAY, AS SHE HELPED TALLY GET READY FOR THE MOST SPECIAL DAY IN HER LIFE. JUST BEFORE THEY HEADED OUTSIDE TO A GARDEN OF WAITING WEDDING GUESTS, THEY'D PAUSE AND LOOK AT EACH OTHER AND REMEMBER THE DAY THAT THEY'D MET. IT WAS THEIR FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN. TALLY WALKED UP TO A SNIFFLING, CRYING, MEAGHAN, AND ASKED HER WHAT HER FAVORITE COLOR WAS. MEAGHAN TOLD TALLY THAT HER FAVORITE COLOR WAS BLUE, AND THEY STARTED A CONVERSATION AND A FRIENDSHIP THAT'S GONE ON FOR THE PAST 24 YEARS. MEAGHAN TAKES THE SLIPPERS OFF, PUTS ON HER PUMPS, AND LEAVES THE SLIPPERS ON THE WOODEN SHELF IN THE CORNER. MEAGHAN CAN'T BELIEVE THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS TALLY STILL REMEMBERS HER FAVORITE COLOR. SHE PICKS UP TALLY'S TRAIN, AND THEY HEAD OUTSIDE.
