Hello! Pencil Nibbler has a new poem for you! It’s called The Remedy for Verboseness. If you’ve ever had to deal with verbose people, well, this one is for you! 🙂
Anyway, Christmas is coming… and Pencil Nibbler has a Christmas special for you! It might come in the form of a short story, or it can be a Christmas edition that adds to The Eventful Life of Morgan Le Fay, a series of short stories set in the Arthurian times. So keep your eyes peeled and your ears pricked for it!
I do not engage in ceaseless burbling: Daily Prompt: Reviving Bricks
You just inherited a dilapidated, crumbling-down grand mansion in the countryside. Assuming money is no issue, what do you do with it?
I would be extremely delighted. I think I would live in it.
If money were not an issue, I’d fix it up and make sure bits of ceiling wouldn’t fall onto me when I slept. Among other things, I would install plumbing; cause if I had inherited a really old mansion, there wouldn’t be any plumbing, huh? Imagine going to a well to draw water, carrying many buckets back to the mansion, and then heating it up over a fire, just to take a bath. Horrid, if you ask me.
I would go medieval as well. I would host random balls and invite lords and ladies over. I would organize jousting competitions in my courtyard. I would keep a barn with horses, and go horse- riding everyday. I would have an archery range built in the meadows just right behind the mansion…
I think it would be splendid if living in the mansion actually took me back in time to the medieval period. It would be sort of fun. But I doubt I would fit in there. (As I said, the plumbing)
Do you dream of being in the medieval times too? 🙂
