Prompt ~IMPRESSIVE AND LUDICROUS
by John Yeo
Old Tom was always thrilled when he had visitors, particularly when his twelve years old Grandson Ferdy came to visit.
‘Where are we going today Grandad?’
‘Well Ferdy, today we shall take a look at Charborough Tower, a well known folly that towers over the surrounding countryside.’
‘What’s a folly Grandad?’
‘A folly is an impressive, costly, ornamental building with no practical purpose, especially a tower or mock-Gothic ruin built in a large garden or park.’
‘Hey Grandad! Why would anyone waste money on something that’s of no use to anyone?’
‘I haven’t got a clue Ferdy! Some people have more money than sense. It will be good to see this impressive tower that was such a ludicrous waste of money when it was built.’
‘Can we go inside and climb to the top Grandad?’
‘I don’t think it’s open to the public, Ferdy. In any case I won’t be able to make it up to the top. It’s five floors high.’
