So I was a Tri Delt in college. Delta Delta Delta.... for a little while at least. Anyway, every sorority in college has a mascot. Ours was a dolphin. In fact, we had a dolphin tank in the basement ;)
You're probably wondering where I'm going with this.
Well, my best friend Ashley was a Chi Omega and my other best friend Christi was a Kappa Kappa Gamma. Yep, we made up the 3 houses at the top of the hill, all right next to each other yet all completely different. That's kind of how our friendship goes though...
So Chi Omega's mascot was the owl. EVERYONE knows that Chi O's are owls. They take total pride in being owls. Everything they own has an owl on it.
Well, Kappa's mascot is also an owl. And a flour de lies. AND a golden key.
You'd think they could just pick one. (I mean if I was a Kappa, I'd choose the flour de leis)
Well, so I've always wondered if it bothered the Chi O's that Kappas were owls too. I mean, we all know that the OWL is Chi Omega territory. Just walk into Ashley's house/go shopping with her. She's very partial to owls.
So answer my question for me, would you be offended if another sorority was using your mascot?
(I know that for most who read my blog, this post is incredibly petty/childish. BUT it really is something I've always wondered about).
