Here's a question: what do you think this is?
Brian and I, along with several others, were arguing about how the owl died. Some said it hit the wall behind the dustbin and landed there. Others suggested that it'd died somewhere else and someone had placed it there. I can't remember who suggested that the owl was fake though...
But one thing's for sure, someone did put it there. And who would've thought that the first owl I got to touch was a dead one?
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.It'll be awhile before my mind escapes this grim reminder of our mortality. This owl probably didn't achieve much in life, yet it has immortalized itself in death in a gruesome way it never intended at all.- Marcus Aurelius Antoninus[courtesy of The Quotations Page]
