How To Be An Owl: Part Three

Another important distinguishing feature of owls is their ability to fly. If I am also going to be able to fly, then the obvious method is to obtain some wings and some feathers, and attach them to my body. However, I suspect that this will be a little difficult, so I am going to explore an alternative method.
What if there was a limited version of flying, available to humans without any additional modifications or training required? Though not as flexible as the method which owls use, it does at least allow you to fly in one direction pretty quickly.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: falling.
I’ve been practicing this quite a bit. I’m getting rather good at it. Though these funny marks are appearing on my head and I seem to be losing control of the right hand sde f bd

  1. Well, the bumps to the head probably go some way to explaining this series of entries.

  2. Although the series of entries seem to have started before the bumps to the head.

  3. Is the soundtrack to this mini-series the one that accompanied “Twin Peaks”?

  4. Please. When you’ve done how to be an owl, could you do how to be a terrapin? Because I have it on good authority that the whole world – well, OK, me and three other people – want to know how to be a terrapin.
    And after terrapins, of course, seahorses.
    And after seahorses . . . well, you get my drift.
    I do believe you’ve found your niche. 🙂
