I hope that you are enjoying my posts from Linda’s Just Jot it January as much as I am enjoying writing them.
Here is today’s prompt word.
Your prompt for January 28th, 2018, brought to you by author Leta Hawk, is “Knight.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Leta at her blog, “Hawk’s Happenings,” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link: https://letaphawk.wordpress.com/
When I think of a knight, the first image that springs to mind is one of a man dressed in a suit of armour with a shield, and probably sat on an impressive horse. I imagine him to spend his time jousting when not in battle, and trying to woo some fair maidens in his spare time!
Even in this modern age, we still refer to people as being ‘a knight in shining armour’ when they have done a good deed. I can’t imagine that there are a huge amount of ‘damsels in distress’ or Princesses that need rescuing, as modern-day ladies are more than capable of looking after themselves pretty well!
Although the idea of being swept off my feet by a handsome knight who would do anything to protect my honour, and treat me like a queen is very romantic. I would probably get fed up with being mollycoddled after a while, Cloaks placed over puddles are all well and good to stop a lady from getting her feet wet, but you can bet that your handsome knight would be expecting you to do the washing! How the hell would you clean a suit of armour as well, it would take bloody ages with Duraglit, and be messy to boot! Plus how annoying would it be to hear him clanking about first thing in the morning as he prepares to go off to battle, and you are trying to get a bit of beauty sleep!
Hmmm, the more I think about it, the happier I am that I am not a medieval maid, I am definitely not cut out for it!
