Ah, what a lovely day. Comfortable chair, morning newspaper, and a nice hot cup of tea. I do love summer mornings in the garden. The birds are singing, the sun is shining ... Rather nice day for a carriage ride with a lovely lady.

Or should I go to work?

No. Not on a day like this. The work can wait. In fact, the lady and the carriage can wait, too. At least until I've done the daily crossword. Let's see, here: "ancient arena escapee".

Hmm. What could that be? ANGELOFDEATH? I know my poor uncle didn't escape him. Ah, no, silly me. Can't do. Completelly wrong number of letters. Let's see, what else could it be?

On second thought, the crossword can wait, too. It's time for my morning nap. Ah, this is going to be another great day!

As the contest ended, here is the solution to this clue:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The narrator says that the escapee is not the Angel of Death and in fact it has a completely different number of letters. As this is a logic puzzle I took it at face value to mean "the escapee's name length is not 12 letters". That rules out "Angel of Death" and "Bone Catapult". I only much later noticed that bone catapult wasn't even an option.
Combining with the other clues, these two are the only ones you need to rule out to get a definite answer. But some people said you could interpret the phrase "Completely wrong number of letters" in a more liberal way and rule out legends whose name is close in legth. The funny thing is that it doesn't even matter how liberal you choose to be because the actual escapee (the Titan) has the shortest name, or the one farthest away from 12 letter! Of course the other clues are still needed for definite answer.
