EVIL of OWLS

When I was a kid, we used to play a game after Sundown that we called "DITCH"...

There were usually about TEN of us gathered together EVERY night in Summer:

The Taylors, The Bonnetts, The Roses-
as well as myself and two of my Brothers...

We would break up into "TEAMS" of two, usually you and your best bud, FIVE teams....The object was for you and your buddy to HIDE anywhere within a four-block radius.

No place was off limits, unless they were particularly scary or DANGEROUS-No hiding in abandoned, to us, HAUNTED houses, no hiding near the train tracks....

But ROOFTOPS, POOLROOMS, and other spots were acceptable...

Four teams searched for you...

The object of the game was for you BOTH to make it back to "HOME BASE", a designated LIGHT POLE....

If one of you were caught, BOTH of you were caught, and another team had to take to the field...

One night, it was getting late, had to be around 10pm. It was getting very dark and COLD for some reason...

We were all gathered beneath the light pole, dreading the certain calls from our MOTHERS to come in for the night....

And we heard a BABY cry...

We were not too concerned at first, but then Joe noticed that it seemed to be coming from above us, we looked UP-

And there was a BABY standing atop the light pole, just beyond the glow of the new AMBER light...

A WHITE-FACED baby with BLACK EYES, staring down at us and CRYING!

You cannot imagine the TERROR of the moment, every one of us rooted to the spot in uncomprehending HORROR...

I remember trying to calm my racing heart and attempt LOGIC, just like SPOCK would do...

But I couldn't wrap my LOGIC around it..

My BRAIN kept saying "Baby on a light pole....BABY on a LIGHT POLE!"

"How can that be---?"

I could NOT understand what I and everyone else was seeing...

I could feel the same COLD feeling I feel now in recalling the event...

A CREEPINESS that began in my inner ear and ran down my back....

I looked at my friends faces, the older guys like my brother had their MOUTHS hanging open...

I forced myself to look up again, dreading what i knew must be TRUE! BABY ON A LIGHT POLE!

Then the "BABY" spread it's wings and flew away!

It was a FRICKIN' OWL!

It looked just like THIS evil bastard!

NOT too fond of them ever since....
