The Bisons (a no food post)

6 Apr

Hi, I’m Carly.

You probably know a bit about me if you’re a follower, but if not, you already know I like traveling and tastes, right? What you might not know is that, along with my insatiable appetite for food and adventure, I have an insatiable curiosity.

When I have a question, it must be answered. I don’t care how long it takes.

So this is why no matter how comfortable I am, no matter what delightful goodness I’m intaking, no matter how much fun I’m having…there’s been a niggling sensation underneath that says: YOU ARE UNFULFILLED.

It all started when I pitched a story to my journalism teacher on the origins of our school mascot (the ungrammatically correct “Bisons”). He loved the story idea, and I set out to get some facts and interviews.

Except, there were none. Facts, that is. I got a couple interviews with people who had no idea why we are called the Bisons and referred me to other people who were also clueless.

I looked in old Lipscomb backlogs. I read books on the history of the school. I searched the web. I called the sports center management. I even asked the president!

No dice.

I did find this Most Popular Boy of 1963. Ooh la la!

I haven’t given up – I still have two more years of school left; I’ll finish that story yet! But it sure is bothersome right now. Do unanswered questions bother you?
