Doyle Owl

I ended up on campus because I'd been hanging out with Kate, David and Kristin (whose birthday it was) and so i just had to get into the Doyle Owl fight. Of course, however, I had no plans, no schemes, and no plots, so I resorted to the only remaining and finest option—Owl Permanence.

I must have spent at least 15-20 minutes on top of the owl, preventing it from moving. I know Reed is full of wussy boys, but seriously, should I really be able to do this so effectively? I'm not really that big or that strong.

Regardless, my phone got wrecked, and for the second time I find myself with a screenless phone. I still have your number in there if it was in there before, but I can't readily retrieve it even though I can call you still. So if you think I need your number again you should let me have it. My guess is that there isn't anyone with this conception of the situation. Hrmph.

I guess I'll just have to carefully brush the mud off once it dries.

Please explain what is the Doyle Owl Fight.
Also include your method of Owl Permanence.

The Doyle Owl is a large cement+rebar owl that long long ago disappeared off the top of one of the oldest Reed buildings. The current owl is probably not the original, but it does not matter: The Owl possesses properties unknown to mankind which incur rabid covetous thoughts in the mind of any who lay their eyes upon it. Every so often The Owl makes its way to campus whence the old possessors are disposed it and new owners take their place.

The Owl weighs approximately 300 lbs, and thus is very difficult to move by oneself, especially when upon sight it is immediately surrounded by 50-100 murderous college students whom wish to possess it for their own.

I, being of sound mind and body, and a slightly older breed, no longer wish to possess The Owl. My sole purpose in the melee was to bind myself to the owl to keep it from moving for as long as possible. While I had the strength The Owl was mine, and it did not move.

You should see the clothes I was wearing.

I still didn't understand your explanation so I did some sluething and am fused with insanity and glee for you. What an activity. So who has the owl now? How did you get so close to it if it's heavily gaurded? Why would you want to wear clothes for such an endeavor?

Well, it was one of the rare occasions when it's brought around for everyone to have a crack at, and I happened to hear from some friends about its appearance.

I'm not sure who has it now as I left around 2, broken and bloody. A friend tells me it didn't finally disappear until around 4.

Probing deeper in the owl situation I read a story from the 80's where a guy stole it from a moving car and also a site that has pics of it- all glittery and tie dyed. This is the same owl? Pack of freaks over such a thing. Heal and be well. Keep me abreast of your performance and if you ever need a hiding spot for the owl should you ever sieze it.

Will do. Seizing it might have to happen next time. I have a plan of sorts.
