|This is the best image (Hallie's abstract |
version) of Reveille IX you'll see here -
none of the pictures of TAMU's new
mascot are available for me to use.
Here's the thing about Reveille, at least as far as my "relationship" with her is concerned. My head tells me, "she's just a dog. A beautifully well-behaved and gorgeous dog, yes, but still, just a dog." But my heart screams, "how can anyone not love this animal?! She exemplifies the TAMU commitment to maintaining its longstanding traditions, unites and inspires students and fans, and represents the university and its core values of excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect, and selfless service. I will follow her to the ends of the earth!"
I think Reveille IX and I are going to have a connection: first, Twix candy bars are my favorite, and second, I too was born on November 22nd.
As I read through the Reveille website, I discovered that people (Aggies only, I assume, though the website doesn't specially say that) can request Miss Rev's appearance at events. I wonder if she'd like to have a joint birthday party with me this fall...
