I am very late to post this week as I have been in the City of York where I got the inspiration for this week’s tall tale.
Lady Zelda and the Statue
100 words – photoprompt prefers to remain anonymous
The statue to your right was originally Sir Ronald Tytefeast. Note the scruffy boots on the plinth edge. The townsfolk resented Sir Ronald’s penchant for dressing as a Greek god while his wife, Lady Zelda, was left with tatty clothes and worn out footwear. But when Sir Ron died, local dignitaries insisted on a statue.
The following summer the newly stylish Zelda married a handsome American who became hugely popular with everyone, except the local dignitaries. When her second husband passed away, Zelda consulted with the people. The stonemasons forthwith decapitated Sir Ron.
Thus we have the only statue in history wearing a toga and a ten-gallon hat.
