Alara, like the rest of us, did not have the best year. Originally planning to attend ventriloquism school, she realized that face masks had rendered useless this age-old comedic skill. ["My lips aren't moving--I swear!!!"]
But, her friends and family never heard the end of it. She was so very, very bummed (or as they say in the ventriloquism game: "in a blue wooden funk").
They all pitched in and got her some amazing jewelry. Now she's as speechless as the dummy she never bought when her plans were derailed.
