Three Line Tales — The Jester

“That’s a jester, son, an entertainer from the medieval days and the renaissance period who was a member of the household of a nobleman or a king and whose job it was to entertain guests,” Gary explained to his young son who asked about the statue of man dressed in the funny outfit.

“Jesters,” Gary continued, “would typically wear a multicolored outfit with a cap with bells on it, pointy shoes with bells at the toes, and would brandish a mock scepter, like the one the jester in that statue is carrying.”

Looking a little confused, Gary’s son said, “Thanks for explaining that to me, Dad, but there’s a kid in my class named Chester and he doesn’t dress at all like that.”

    My oldest son, when he was ten or so, once asked me about Goo Goo Dolls. I thought he had said voodoo dolls, gave him an answer on that. He seemed a little confused but said nothing.
